Media & Entertainment Disputes

Content disputes take many shapes and forms, and we deal with them all.

Whether the dispute be breach of copyright, passing off, breach of confidence, privacy, defamation, malicious falsehood – or a combination two or more of those – then we have the expertise to deal with it. We also have all the industry expertise to deal effectively with contractual disputes. We make an early assessment and if we think you will lose we will tell you and get you out of the dispute as quickly and cheaply as possible. If we think you will win we fight your corner hard and try to get you a resolution early on to avoid the expense and uncertainty of a trial.

We also view programmes and read copy for libel and privacy expertly and robustly deploying our in-depth legal and industry knowledge; work we have done for a wide range of broadcasters and publishers.
