We are a specialist media litigation team that acts in high-value, complex and multi-jurisdictional disputes in the UK and Europe.
We act in disputes relating to film, television, broadcasting, publishing, music, digital and traditional media, advertising and content distribution.
Our Media Disputes team, led by partners Patrick Dunaud and Ryan Dunleavy, is composed of both UK and French-qualified lawyers who specialise in the media sector and can help resolve any kind of media dispute. We represent major international content producers, publishers, advertisers, telecommunications and internet service providers, talent, and other media clients around the world.
We have unrivalled experience in putting together innovative costs arrangements. The use of third party funding, after-the-event insurance and risk-sharing fee agreements enables our clients to manage risk and litigate from a position of financial strength.
In addition to conducting litigation in the UK, our lawyers coordinate claims in overseas jurisdictions, when necessary working alongside specialist law firms around the world.
