We provide editorial legal guidance to clients on an ad hoc or retained basis. This service could include:
- a pre-publication copy-checking service where clients are concerned about possible legal problems in their publication, broadcast or website.
- assisting publishers and broadcasters in framing letters and representations to be made to oppose court orders or gain access to hearings.
- These services can be offered to organisations at a board level where editorial legal expertise is needed.
Please note this is not a replacement for legal representation if you have received a legal complaint – but good editorial decisions at an early stage can often avoid costly legal consequences.
