Advertising & Public Relations

Our attorneys help clients with a wide array of issues in the advertising & public relations industry. We address day-to-day issues such as negotiating licenses with real estate owners for special events and drafting ground leases and billboard licenses for billboard advertising companies. Our attorneys assist advertisers and public relations firms by helping them develop, maintain and protect their intellectual property including trademarks and copyrighted materials. By structuring sweepstakes and drafting enforceable contest rules, we help our clients and their customers launch and carry out promotions in compliance with applicable law. As with clients in any industry, we have extensive experience helping clients navigate corporate governance issues. We also represent advertising agencies and public relations firms as they sell their business, acquire competitors, merge with other companies, rebrand or otherwise move forward into new industries. Our litigation attorneys are, as always, ready to assist our advertising and public relations clients when any kind of dispute arises.

We also have experience helping clients navigate the new and constantly changing practice of advertising in legal cannabis markets to assist clients and in order to help prevent their advertising from running afoul of state regulations.
