Izard Weston are media and entertainment law specialists

Izard Weston has a strong media and entertainment practice built through decades of advising private and public sector media organizations and personalities on media, defamation and entertainment issues.

We work closely with publishers, broadcasters and other media providing advice and managing the risks regarding defamation, contempt, privacy, confidentiality and copyright. We review newspaper and magazine articles, advertisements, Internet/web pages, manuscripts, books, radio broadcasts, and television and film productions prior to publication or broadcast. Our practice also includes assessing films, documentaries and movies requiring errors and omissions insurance, and advising on New Zealand’s advertising and broadcasting standards.

Our media specialists also represent clients in litigation or dispute processes involving defamation, contempt of court, injunctions, suppression orders, breaches of privacy, copyright and confidentiality, and other media law issues before the New Zealand courts, Select Committees, the Broadcasting Standards Authority and the Press Council.

We provide training workshops to journalists and publishers on these and other current media law issues.
