Media and Intellectual Property

The most cherished asset for most businesses is intangible. Intellectual property law protects the ownership and use of copyright, patents, trademarks, design rights, protection from passing off and protection of confidential information. These rights are becoming increasingly valuable in the digital age. We ensure that our commercial clients’ intellectual property rights are appropriately protected and we take quick and effective steps to stop the unauthorised use and exploitation of their rights.

Media law is an exciting and growing area of law. The rise of the Internet and various forms of social media has dramatically changed the scope of this area of law. This has a big impact on businesses whose reputations can be instantly affected by statements made and disseminated on television, radio, print media and the Internet.

We regularly act for commercial entities, businesses and charities and advise them on all aspects of defamation, libel and slander law in order to protect and maintain their reputation.

Defamation and Libel Law

Find out more

Broadly speaking, defamation occurs when a statement is published which causes people to think less of the person spoken of. Our solicitors have expertise in dealing with media and IP issues having acted for both parties in defamation and libel disputes (i.e. the claimants / the victims and also the defendant / the alleged statement makers). We will generally seek an early resolution to any dispute where possible through negotiation, as in our experience it is not always necessary to resort to court involvement thereby keeping costs down. However, if court action becomes necessary we represent our clients robustly and will always ensure we achieve the best result possible.
