The transmission of information is increasingly supported by digital means, in particular by new models of production and distribution of contents (podcasts, streaming platforms, digital advertising, etc.).

This paradigm shift raises legal and regulatory issues that require in-depth and experienced analysis.

At CS'Associados, we have a team with extensive experience in the different areas of law relevant to this sector, offering personalised, careful and attentive advice.

In this sense, our advice is based on the following areas:

  • Regulatory issues;
  • Compliance programmes;
  • Assistance with new product launches;
  • Employment and disciplinary matters relating to professional ethics;
  • Civil, criminal and regulatory litigation.
