Taking into account the ever-increasing presence of new communication tools, lawyers at Cornet Vincent Ségurel provide assistance to elected officials, business leaders and private individuals on their press-related issues.
Such assistance can be provided both to defendants and claimants; initiating a claim generally necessitates preparation of a consultation to assess the advisability of a legal action.
Cornet Vincent Ségurel’s offices in Paris enable us, where required, to provide an effective defence of our clients’ needs including before the 17th Chamber of the Paris High Court [Tribunal de Grande Instance], a court specialised in Press Law.
We cover the needs of our clients in a comprehensive way:
- Analysis of the wrongfulness of contentious statements;
- Filing a complaint and follow-up of the investigation procedure;
- Assistance and representation during court hearings (claims or defence).
The expertise of Cornet Vincent Ségurel’s teams in matters related to Press Law also enables us to provide advice to publication directors, prior to the publication of statements that may present a risk, as for example, in the area of electoral communication.
