Advertising & Marketing
We have been advising clients in the advertising sector since the early 1970s. We advised the founders of advertising agencies which went on to become icons of the British advertising industry, and key components of the world’s leading agency networks.
Along the way, we’ve advised them on mergers and acquisitions, public company flotations and ultimately on to their sale. We helped them hire people and fire people, and now we teach them how look after millennials. We advised on them on their contracts, their IP, their premises, their disputes, their tax and their immigration issues.
But a few years ago, advertisers began to realize that if they wanted specialist advertising advice, they should speak to a firm that is immersed in the business. So now we advise them too, particularly in relation to data protection and privacy, advertising regulation, talent contracts and intellectually property protection, enforcement and disputes.
