We are recognized by Media Law International 2023
Media law is one of our core areas of expertise. We advise the largest press publishers, radio and television broadcasters and digital platform operators. We ensure that the media fulfil their social role in a democratic state consistently and seamlessly. And that brings us not only satisfaction, but also awards and recognition from the market. And, of course, referrals from satisfied clients.
Defending the right to information and freedom of expression
Our press law, media freedom, copyright and personal and image protection team has a proven track record of winning high-profile cases of which we are particularly proud.
For many years, we have advised Ringier Axel Springer Polska (RASP), one of the largest publishers in Poland, which owns 16 publishing brands including Forbes, ForbesWomen, Przegląd Sportowy, Fakt, Business Insider, Newsweek Polska and Onet. Last year we represented RASP in almost 300 cases concerning freedom of the press, protection of personal rights and press rectifications in both civil and criminal proceedings, successfully changing the interpretation of law in favour of our clients.
As an example, we are currently advising a business and legal publisher and its former journalists who published an article exposing a major financial scandal – a Ponzi scheme involving several hundred thousand mostly elderly people.
This is just one of the many examples for which this year we have again been recognised by Media Law International.
Strong media law team at Kochański & Partners
The award-winning team is led by Mateusz Ostrowski, a litigation expert in the broad field of media and technology.
Subscribers to our newsletter, #TheRightFocus, are already familiar with Mateusz’s sharp pen, as a writer and uncompromising critic of all measures designed to strengthen the role of autocrats or restrict the public’s access to knowledge and reliable information. He is also a specialist in technology disputes, commercial fraud and fintechs.
Mateusz also participates in the Artificial Intelligence Working Group established at the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, in the sub-group on AI liability for damage and the role of AI in the judiciary.
Recently, Mateusz has reviewed the amendment to the Civil Procedure Code, has written about SLAPPs (lawsuits designed simply to intimidate and stifle public debate and spread disinformation) and has followed the high-profile AI lawsuit against Google.
We expect to hear about further successes from our media law team soon.
