    Media Law

    In addition to the classic areas such as Press and Publishing Law, a focus of our practice is on the area of new media. Topics such as the "unbundling of rights" with regard to the utilization of contents in the new media (IPTV, video on demand, etc.), legal assistance in setting up innovative business models in the area of new media, providing advice on new forms of advertising such as branded entertainment, combating Internet pirating and legal assistance with digitalization projects are our daily bread.

    Press Law

    The media sector is more profoundly impacted by digital transformation than almost any other industry. Along with overcoming major commercial challenges, media companies must also continue to comply with strict duties of care in their publications. With regard to the other side of the divide, it is becoming increasingly difficult for businesses and private individuals to protect their reputations and personal rights because damaging statements spread like wildfire online and via social networks. Lawyers advising on press law matters thus need a high level of experience and accuracy, combined with speed and cost awareness.
