Media Law

Journalistic activities often pose high risk of one's infringement of personality due to the publicity a story might generate. As defined by law, any journalist must, prior to the release of an article, verify the veracity of the information and the events to be published. We have handled a series of such cases by defending whether the injured from the news story party or the journalist who fulfilled his/her duty and thoroughly checked the veracity of the information prior to its public release.

Recently, our firm represented an internationally renowned news agency on a case instituted against it by a Greek bank, by arguing that the matters pertaining to the core of Greece's financial state and to the operation of the Greek banking system justify criticism, without this being considered as defamation of the banking institution.
