Press and Media

Freedom of the press, deeply embedded in the constitution, stops at the point when the personality rights of individuals are violated. The dissemination of false facts or defamatory statements can trigger claims for injunction, counterstatement, retraction and damages.

In press and media law, bock legal has been representing publishers, agencies, media companies and individuals for many years in legal disputes, such as in the case of incorrect or defamatory media coverage.

Our extensive expertise and litigation experience help us to achieve lasting success for our clients in out-of-court proceedings: we enforce injunctions, counter-statements, retraction, damages or pecuniary compensation in and out of courts or defend against them. If a crisis threatens your company with a high level of media interest, we support you in dealing with press enquiries and review all the disclosures to be published. We create and review media-specific contracts of all kinds.
