Media and Publishing

More than 20 years of experience in providing legal support to our clients in the areas broadcasting, media and publishing.

For more than two decades our firm has advised and represented our clients on the full spectrum of broadcasting, media and publishing – both in and out of court. Our lawyers’ expertise covers the vast array of press law, freedom of speech, broadcasting and media regulation, and constitutional media law. We work with our clients to develop the best possible solutions for their specific needs – at legal, strategic and political level.

Our clients include public figures, celebrities, enterprises and authorities at federal, state and local level as well as broadcasters and media representatives who regularly benefit from our legal support and advice. We have an extensive track record in

  • press law and freedom of expression, broadcasting and publishing rights.
  • cases of “media crisis” and media reports based on suspicions, to prevent anticipated condemnation by the media and stigmatisation on‑ and offline,
  • broadcasting law with regard to transmission capacities, content regulation and safeguarding media diversity,
  • constitutional law, when disputes arise regarding the protection of the freedom of the press and media and of personal rights, and on fundamental issues of the dual broadcasting system.

Clients benefit from our specialist knowledge and extensive experience (including forensic experience). With a deep understanding of the emerging relevant issues our lawyers are able to provide reliable and optimal tailored advice, with a clear view of when a friendly settlement is worthwhile and when litigation is required. We partner with our clients’ other advisors on the project, enabling us to form a coordinated team extending beyond our firm to develop the best possible solutions for our clients’ unique needs. In this way, we are able to provide integrated advice tailored to our clients’ strategy and economic situation.

We are at your side – as your reliable and relentless advocates.
