Regulatory Solicitors

Gone are the days when a breach of a Code of Practice meant no more than a slap on the wrist.

OFCOM fines for breaches of its Codes in recent years have demonstrated the determination that broadcasters will strictly adhere to those Codes.

We have made successful complaints to OFCOM for corporate clients, resulting in broadcast of apologies / findings. Equally, we give advice on compliance with the Codes to our media clients and have advised them on mitigation for breaches.
