Litigation and risk management

Press law

Press law ensures the respect and implementation of freedom of expression. Composed of a wide variety of texts of French and European origin, of various specific liability regimes and derogations from common law, press law, whatever its format, requires a sharp and solid expertise.

With its experience in press law and communication law in general, JP Karsenty assists and defends its clients before civil and criminal courts in cases involving press law disputes. 

JP Karsenty assists press , publishers, companies and individuals, whether they are victims or defendants.  

In matters of press law, the victim of a statement, a writing, an image or a video must react quickly after publication. JP Karsenty defends the reputation of its clients in these cases, which are subject to extremely tight deadlines (the statute of limitations for these actions is 3 months). 

The firm's criminal team is involved in the management of pre-litigation and litigation, at all stages of the proceedings. The drafting of the complaint requires particular attention, as it is very much regulated in matters of defamation. JP Karsenty's expertise allows it to develop an effective and sharp defense strategy in its various fields of practice. 

The press law team is headed by Matthieu CHIREZ and Thomas RICARD.
