We regularly advise major brands on the legality of advertising campaigns and sales promotions as well as comparative advertising and dispute resolution.

Our experience covers agency pitches and appointments, media buying, sales promotions, draws and competitions, digital marketing and social networking arrangements.

Working with many leading brand owners, we advise rights holders on all aspects of exploiting their intellectual property assets. This includes sponsorship arrangements for events, teams, venues and TV programmes, advice on ambush marketing and negotiating deals for brand or celebrity endorsements.
