Our team focuses exclusively on advertising, marketing and media work. As the advertising and marketing industry invents new ways to promote products and reach new audiences, we’re there to help our clients comply with regulations internationally. We advise global brands and some of the best and brightest businesses across the marketing services sector. We’re widely recognised for our expertise in advertising law, our pedigree in corporate transactions and the pragmatic, commercial advice we provide to clients.
In the agency world we focus predominantly on independent businesses, advising them throughout their life cycle. We’ve completed over 150 corporate transactions internationally over the last 30 years, working on ground-breaking deals with some of the biggest names, including Facebook, We Are Social, Profero, The OysterCatchers and Adam and Eve.
Our clients operate global businesses and we’re there to support them in European capitals, in New York and in many other cities besides. We co-ordinate M&A deals, manage cross-border disputes and advise on HR and employee matters, among others. We offer a complete legal service and we’re not restricted by location.
