Protecting Individual Clients
Mass Media reporting may destroy the reputation
False statements, illegally produced photos, films or reporting on aspects of one’s private life – there are many different forms of violation of our individual clients.
There are, however, also many options for defence:
Counter statements (Gegendarstellung) damages for pain and suffering (Schmerzensgeld), compensation (Schadensersatz), cease and desist (Unterlassung) & revocation (Widerruf). The correct response to a negative report is not just a question of law, as a lawsuit may have the potential to create new publicity.
The optimal response to a violation is not just a legal question but also requires communication experience as a lawsuit may have the potential to create new publicity. We have experienced all imaginable cases and situations during the last 35 years and use this experience successfully to advise our clients in the best possible manner.
