The Publishing Group has collective experience in all areas of law relevant to the publishing industry, from setting up conventional distribution channels, launching social media websites and advising on employment issues to structuring investments and acquisitions. In the event that matters become contentious, we provide advice both pre and post publication on issues relating to defamation, misuse of private information, breach of confidence and data protection.
Fast-paced developments (both legal and technological) impacting the publishing industry and the emergence and influence of new media conglomerates have raised a host of legal issues for our clients with interests in the publishing sector. With the ongoing shift in the balance of publishing media from print to electronic, it is essential that stakeholders have a comprehensive understanding of their legal obligations and access to guidance as to how their rights or other interests can be best protected in a digital world, alongside specialist commercial advice in the traditional sense.
