Evolving at a very high pace

The media industry is evolving at a very high pace. The digital transformation offers both exiting opportunities as well as serious challenges from a business and a legal perspective.

As some of the traditional business models are under severe pressure, the established stakeholders are obliged to reinvent themselves at the risk of being replaced by ambitious tech start-ups. Legislators try to keep up as well resulting in recurrent important regulatory changes.

Our multi-disciplinary team of lawyers are your trusted guide to help you navigate through the dense forest that media law is today. They master the full range of legal services with regards to national and cross-border matters and understand and respect the individuality and the specific nature of each business. Our exclusive and close collaboration with the leading tax firm, Tiberghien, enables our team to secure tax compliance when handling media issues.

Our clients vary from production companies, motion pictures studios, broadcasters, publishing houses of printed and online media, to athletes and media personalities. We provide advice and litigation services in all legal and tax matters.

In recognition of our expertise, we have been ranked in ‘band 1’ by Media Law International and we have been listed as ‘Tier 1 Firm’ by Legal 500, 2018.
