Dispute Resolution

We have an enviable track record advising on a wide spectrum of contentious matters in the media industry and always offer bespoke and cost-effective solutions to address whatever has arisen.

Our aim is to help clients to avoid proceedings where possible. We are on hand as soon as issues arise to provide a quick contract review and initial advice as to options to try and head off a full dispute.We assist regularly with mediation and other alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. However, sometimes litigation is unavoidable. In such cases, you can obtain the benefit of our extensive experience of dealing with all aspects of the process from the obtaining of injunctive relief through to trial and enforcement. In all circumstances, our goal is to understand your underlying objectives and to implement a workable and cost-effective remedy.

We advise on the full range of contractual disputes such as those involving supply, distribution, agency, presenter, publishing and consumer contracts, joint venture agreements, interpretation and breach of contractual provisions, misrepresentation, claims for damages and specific performance.

We are experienced in advising on shareholder and director disputes in relation to media companies. Our past work has involved acting on a number of high-profile disputes which necessitated effective management of PR issues surrounding litigation and working closely with PR advisers.
