Solicitors for You

Media Law

Individuals often require advice from us in the media sector whether it be negotiating and drafting a sponsorship or endorsement agreement, instructing us to undertake litigation in order to protect and vindicate their reputation or advising on intellectual property rights.

Image rights and privacy law is a grey area in this jurisdiction and we have the expertise to advise clients in these areas. Guernsey recently introduced the world’s first image rights registry whereby individuals, companies and groups can register their image rights on a public record and can use this registration to protect and exploit their images and avail of beneficial tax structures. We can assist clients with such registration.
