Media lawyers

These are exciting times for the media sector, given the opportunities – and challenges – arising from the convergence of media, technology and telecoms, changes in consumer behaviour and content delivery, the proliferation of data, and an ever-changing regulatory regime heavily influenced by political and economic factors.

They are exciting times for us too. After our merger on 1 May 2017, combining CMS, Nabarro and Olswang, we are the largest –and newest – law firm in the UK to have a top tier media practice. The synergies that will come from combining Olswang’s famous excellence in media law with the vision, innovation and sector focus of the new CMS promise great things, and a greater service then ever for our clients.
