Media, Entertainment and Advertising
Lathrop & Gage is a leader in media, entertainment and advertising law. With a client list that includes some of the Midwest’s leading newspapers and television news organizations, to motion picture and television producers and studios in the heart of the entertainment industry in Southern California, to digital media companies that operate in the borderless world of cyberspace, we understand the concerns of clients operating in those industries.
In addition to lawyers who focus on such media-specific issues as First Amendment protections and pre-publication/clearance review, we offer multidisciplinary capabilities in defamation, right of privacy, right of publicity, copyright and trademark law, licensing and distribution, contract law, cyberlaw, and mobile-phone marketing compliance and litigation.
Interactive technology has transformed the relationship between print, broadcast, film, digital and advertising media. Our lawyers thoroughly understand the complex legal questions involving free speech, contract, intellectual property and creative control issues that are at the center of this new media world. Members of our media practice have served as in-house counsel to a major production company, have worked as journalists for major media organizations, hold journalism degrees from the nation’s elite journalism schools, and have litigated a wide range of digital media claims in courts nationwide. Such experience enables us to meet the high standards and expectations that media and entertainment clients demand.
The media, entertainment and advertising group was named “Band 2” by Chambers USA 2013 for Illinois Media and Entertainment: Litigation.
