Advertising & Marketing
We have been advising clients in the advertising sector since the early 1970s. We have advised the founders of advertising agencies which became icons of the British advertising industry, to many of the world’s largest agency networks, as well as leading independent agencies.
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 (including the GDPR), advertising regulation, talent contracts, employment status of freelancers and intellectually property protection, enforcement and disputes.
