German and international copyright law has traditionally been the firm's core competence, and represents a common interface with the various specialist fields within media law.
Advertising is not an independent field of law, but draws instead on a whole range of rights, in particular copyright, trademark and competition law. We act for agencies, media agencies, and advertising clients, helping them to develop and implement their creative ideas.

PR law draws upon a range of different legal practice areas, including copyright, competition law and press law.
