Media, Social Media + Entertainment Lawyers

Providing skill + experience

We have extensive experience acting for clients in these sectors.  

We understand the nuances of dealing with legal challenges and issues that may arise in this unique area of practice.  

With the rise of social media defamation and injurious falsehood claims, it is also important to have the right advice about commentary on social media platforms relating to individuals and companies.

There is a real growth in this area of the law.
