Preserving one’s honour and reputation remains one of the highest legal concerns for companies as well as individuals. Rights of personality, corporate interest and freedom of the press are often in conflict.
Untrue allegations, illegal defamation, unlawfully produced, or the use of, photos and films or reports that were meant to be private may damage the good reputation of an individual and the economic basis of a company for a long time. Press law provides a means of legal defense:
- We advise companies and individuals on the rights of free speech. We act in disputes between the individual and the press.
- We support you professionally. We have an awareness of the legal and journalistic issues involved when it comes to the strategic selection and enforcement of effective press law measures. Careful analysis will provide the appropriate response and determine the most successful course of action whether it means counterstatements, omission, withdrawal, damages or compensation for pain and suffering.
- We first of all establish our client’s initial position and then the possible legal alternatives. We also discuss with our clients’ legal and communications departments the effects and consequences of press law measures and represent their interests against editors, publishers and broadcasters.
