If your business has interests in foreign countries, it is important to watch international data protection and privacy regulations. Our International Data Protection Regulations group will help you stay ahead of the curve and prepare for new rules that affect your company.

Concept to Publication

From concept to creation in all types of media, clients seek our counsel for fair and measured evaluation of the issues at stake and the potential risks involved. We know their business and take care to manage the process, their reputation and their work as if it were our own. We regularly represent a host of media organizations and businesses in this area including:

  • Advertising agencies – boutique and full-service agencies
  • Bands, artists, production companies and others in the entertainment industry
  • Digital media specialists
  • Publishers and authors
  • Corporate advertisers – businesses using social media, e-commerce or traditional advertising


With a host of media platforms and communications vehicles before you, communicating your business’s messages has never been more exciting. With the promise of agility and expediency, however, comes even greater potential for error.

When things don’t go as planned – and you need representation in a suit or you want to pursue a claim of your own – we can represent your interests in disputes involving issues of:

  • Access to publicly available information (Sunshine Law)
  • Anti-trust
  • Commercial disparagement
  • Commercial speech
  • Comparative advertising
  • Defamation
  • First Amendment rights
  • Intellectual property rights
  • Invasion of privacy
  • Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)

Whether using social media, traditional channels or merging these two and more, we can help you better understand all of the rules and regulations governing your media and communication activities.
