Press Law / Entertainment Law
Freedom of the press is a great benefit and is protected in the German constitutional law. However, the freedom of the press is limited whenever slander or abusive criticism are disseminated about individuals or enterprises.
Preu Bohlig & Partner represents newspaper enterprises and broadcasting companies as well as businesses, entrepreneurs or private individuals in the case of incorrect or defamatory press statements. Our activity mainly focuses on asserting and warding off claims - both in and out of court - for disparagement, counter-statement, pecuniary compensation, impairment of credit standing and revocation. Here the claim to cease and desist and - if and where necessary - the preventive cease-and-desist order against pending publications is important. Moreover, we are frequently active in asserting or warding off petitions for infringement of personality rights and the privilege as to one\’s own image.
