When victory is the only option, media and communications clients turn to Lightfoot's experienced litigation counsel.
Often, a clear victory is often the only option for media and communications clients facing litigation. Reputations, livelihoods and the fates of entire companies are often on the line. At Lightfoot, we are known for our tenacious advocacy on behalf of clients in the media and communications space, and we bring all of our considerable trial and courtroom skills to bear on these matters.
Lightfoot clients include newspapers, broadcasters, publishers, national and regional telecommunications service providers, reporters and distributors. We have represented media-related entities in matters ranging from defamation and invasion of privacy lawsuits to First Amendment, government access, censorship, copyright and talent retention claims. Journalists and publishers also seek our counsel prior to publication to help mitigate the risk of potential litigation.
We pride ourselves on not only securing the best result for our clients, but also implementing processes that increase efficiencies and streamline the litigation process. For example, in addition to helping clients defend their intellectual property rights under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Lightfoot created an extranet that allows them to access paperless files and manage document production for cases around the country.
Lightfoot lawyers bring this same level of attention and case management diligence to every matter they handle. Whether protecting a journalist’s sources under shield laws or pursuing access to public records on behalf of media outlets, we are always focused on the details.
