Due to advancing technology, news coverage and communication have become an indispensable part of our everyday lives. As constant companions, they have a considerable influence on our actions. Negative reports that spread in an instant via social media can endanger the image of a person or a company in the long term. The German media and freedom of speech law are therefore characterised by the need to safeguard the freedom of expression, to protect personal rights and to ensure the efficient protection of reputation.
The multifaceted nature of the German media and freedom of speech law requires a deep understanding of the legal intricacies. In addition, asserting your rights without delay is necessary, as there are short preclusion periods, especially in press law, after the expiry of which legal enforceability is excluded.
The German law firm Schlun & Elseven is at your side to support you in all matters relating to the media and freedom of speech law. Whether it is a violation of your personality rights, the use of a personal image or a case of defamation, malicious gossip, or insult – our lawyers for German media, press and freedom of speech law offer competent and committed legal assistance.
