Media Law

In addition to our Advertising and Promotions practice, we handle litigation and counseling for media and non-media clients in the areas of First Amendment law, personal and product defamation, business disparagement, pre-publication due diligence review, and privacy. We assist clients with a wide array of issues arising from the publication and dissemination of information in all media, including print, television, radio, and the Internet. With the increasing shift to electronic delivery of information and the explosive growth of social media, our firm’s practice has evolved and adapted to meet our clients’ needs in all media channels.

Our media law group includes litigators, intellectual property attorneys, and mediators in the fields of publicity, privacy, First Amendment, and trade secret issues. The firm’s 127-year history as a renowned intellectual property boutique means that our attorneys have extensive familiarity with issues that commonly arise in new media and technology cases, such as matters involving domain names, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), the Communications Decency Act (“CDA”), and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (“CFAA”). Our lawyers practice collaboratively, bringing to bear their collective expertise on behalf of our clients in today’s highly competitive and ever evolving media landscape.
