Publishing

Our publishing lawyers have decades of experience offering advice across all aspect of the industry. We count three of the publishing industry’s trade bodies as clients.

As well as rights acquisition, rights licensing, and digital distribution, we advise on every aspect of pre-publication risk and are recognised as a leading law firm in this field.

Our cross-media expertise has benefitted publishers who are looking to navigate new revenue models, for example in relation to film and video game rights. More recently we have been at the cutting edge of technological change, steering publishers into the digital age and onto new platforms and devices. In addition, our corporate law team is highly experienced in joint venture and merger and acquisition transactions for all forms of publishers.
