We also advise clients with respect to publishing and royalty disputes, representing both publishers and authors.

Our team has extensive experience in the traditional areas of libel and privacy, newsroom counseling, state and central Freedom of Information, Open Meetings disputes, entry into courtrooms and other public proceedings, and access to public records. We advise on the gamut of newsgathering issues, subpoena, and access litigation. We are also experienced in digital media including the areas of advertising clearance, the Communications Decency , the Digital Millennium Copyright , user agreements including terms of use and privacy policies, international privacy protection, endorsement issues, content licensing, branding, website and software development, compliance and cybersquatting. We dedicate ourselves to helping clients avoid litigation by regularly counseling on legal issues throughout content development. We conduct, for example, pre-publication reviews and seminars to help avoid costly litigation. Yet, when the need arises, our attorneys bring to bear a rich history of successfully litigating traditional and digital media issues at the trial and appellate levels as we actively participate.

Our clients are diverse and sophisticated, conducting their business both on and offline. Our digital media clients range from bloggers and social media boards to internet start-up companies.
