FMG's Media, Advertising and Entertainment team provides counseling and defense for the full array of legal challenges to businesses and professionals involved in the creation, production, distribution, publication and broadcast of film, print and electronic content.
Whether the business model is a traditional entertainment, media, or advertising business or the latest digital platform, the ever changing legal landscape requires an experienced team of attorneys well versed in the myriad of modern legal claims such as business interruptions, copyright and trademark, directors and officer claims, social media, defamation, data breaches, contract disputes, employment claims, and catastrophic accidents.
The FMG team has faced virtually every type of legal issue encountered in representation media, entertainment and advertising businesses, including so called “news gathering torts,” negligent hiring and supervision, invasion of privacy or publicity, copyright, trademark, title, slogan infringement, unfair competition and usurpation of business opportunities, misappropriation and plagiarism. We also have defended and prosecuted breach of license to use a third party’s intellectual property, libel, slander and defamation including contextual error claims, and cases concerning breach of agreement to maintain the confidentiality of sources.
We also routinely handle Errors and Omissions claims as well as property damage and negligence claims. And, our practice group works in tandem with our nationally renown Data Privacy and Breach team in all aspects of cyber breaches, breach counseling and forensic examinations.
