Our lawyers negotiate, draft and enforce the full range of advertising and marketing-related business agreement including:

  • Partner, affiliate, collaboration and co-promotion agreements

Strongly believing in the value of proactive risk avoidance, we offer strategies to minimize our clients’ exposure and establish enforcement protocols regarding when, how and where legal action should be taken if an agreement is violated. If an amicable resolution proves unachievable, our experienced advertising, marketing and promotions litigators are ready and able to take matters to federal and state courts and applicable arbitral bodies, including the American Arbitration Association, JAMS and the International Centre for Dispute Resolution. We have successfully enforced breaches of service and distribution agreements, noncompete provisions, and supply breaches.

Further, we work closely with our industry-focused regulatory lawyers to avoid statutory challenges by guiding e-commerce marketer clients with applicable laws and regulations governing their online marketing.
