The team is well known for having the strongest editorial team outside London. We act for most of the regional and local press in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, as well as national news organisations, magazine publishers, radio broadcasters, TV broadcasters, and online publishers.
We advise publishers and broadcasters on all aspects of content management including:
- pre-publication/pre-broadcast copy checking
- post-publication complaints, litigation, and mediation
- compliance with the Codes issued by the Independent Press Standards Organisation, the Advertising Standards Authority, and Ofcom
- contempt of court
- privacy, breach of confidence, and misuse of private information
- reporting restrictions
- lotteries and promotions
Importantly, our media clients have access to our specialists 365 days of the year. We are able to deliver advice at short notice and to deadline. Our ethos is to work with journalists, editors, and publishers, so our starting point is always to encourage publication, not discourage it.
NEW - the Community News Hub
As hyper-local journalism continues to increase in popularity, we are pleased to announce the creation of the Community News Hub - our new subscription service for local and hyper-local, independent, community, news publishers who only have a need for specialist legal advice on an occasional basis.
