WHAT WE DO
M Law acts for clients from a wide range of areas of business and
e-commerce in the negotiation and drafting of commercial terms. M Law is also instructed by clients in the contentious aspects of contractual disputes.
With the presence of Tom, who taught the international tax LLM paper at King's College London, M Law has the benefit of an unrivalled level of tax expertise.
This is reinforced by the presence of Mark Boardman who was with the investigation arm of HMRC.
We have learned that our clients need simplification, not complication. Our aim is to reduce documentation and make these transactions more straightforward, but without reducing the proper protections and remedies to which all parties to these transactions are entitled.
We draft and negotiate all forms of commercial agreement required by clients in publishing. Our specialist knowledge and experience ensures practical solutions that work to the benefit of publishing clients.
We also provide the full range of regulatory advice, including pre-transmission compliance advice, independent third party verification, regulatory investigations, hearings and appeals (OFT, OFCOM, ASA and PSA). Our team includes specialists in specific regulated sectors, such as television, telecoms and gambling; interactive services (including participation TV) and premium rate services. We have a vast amount of experience advising on content-related disputes across all types of platforms and technologies.
The laws of confidentiality and privacy have seen significant developments over the recent years. M Law has been at the cutting edge of this new area, having represented Hello! in the pre-eminent case of Douglas v. Hello!.
M LAW represents individuals including sporting personalities, websites such as Digital Spy and Popbitch, and companies such as Brawn GP on issues of libel, privacy and confidentiality. It also represents a range of publishers such as Hachette (Elle and Red magazines), Hello! magazine and Legal Business
