Dispute resolution

Media disputes

Howard Kennedy’s Media Disputes practice offers specialist advice and representation to individuals and corporates across publishing, theatre, film, TV, music, advertising, PR, marketing, gaming, and social media.

Our lawyers know media law and regulation inside and out. We advise on a wide range of media disputes with a particular focus on defamation and reputation management, data protection, and freedom of information.

New media and technology has extended the reach of traditional media which has in turn lead to new issues. We work with clients at the forefront of these emerging media and are frequently asked to contribute on how legislation can be shaped to handle modern media disputes.

The current media landscape means that often clients face a trial by social media and allegations made publicly online can spiral out of control causing irreparable damage to the reputation of individuals and organisations instantly. Clients rely on us to provide reactive, tactical strategies to manage these issues.

Our advice goes far beyond reputation management and covers a spectrum of related services such as copyright disputes, brand and licensing disputes, privacy issues, and cybercrime. Whatever your dispute, we will use our wealth of experience to resolve this in the most cost effective manner to get the best outcome for you.

We regularly advise a wide range of clients including media organisations, organisations embarking on media-related activities or individuals working within media.
