Media and Press Law

We have in-depth expertise in electronic and print media. For many years, we have represented media companies of all sizes both in court and out of court, providing advice on the full spectrum of industry-specific legal matters.

Our media and press law practice focuses on the following issues in particular:

  • Defamation issues
  • Labour and employment law – particularly with regard to Tendenzschutz (the right of certain types of German employers to require employees to meet standards in line with the philosophy of the organisation)
  • media competition and antitrust law
  • copyright law and related fields
