The attorneys in Pullman & Comley's Marketing, Advertising and Entertainment practice represent advertising agencies, public relations firms, sales promotion agencies, sports organizations, entertainment companies and a number of large national advertisers. Our practice in this area focuses on advising clients regarding the design, development and execution of various consumer-related promotions and advertising campaigns, including those incorporating rapidly-developing technologies. Our goal is always to ensure compliance with federal and state laws, without sacrificing business needs or marketing goals. We have worked with clients to structure and implement prominent–and often unique–national promotions, as well as contests focused on linking a brand to a community or social issue. Our attorneys also have significant experience drafting and negotiating marketing, advertising and entertainment-related agreements.
Our advertising practice includes reviewing ad copy (for traditional print ads, digital ads, TV and radio) and providing advice regarding claim substantiation and other advertising-related issues. We also advise large and small businesses with crafting disclosures on space-constrained screens and social media platforms to comply with consumer protection laws.
We represent clients in matters before the National Advertising Division of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, the Federal Trade Commission, television networks and state consumer protection agencies. We provide training seminars for our clients on claims substantiation and other legal issues to assist them in adopting “best practices” and reducing the time required to obtain legal clearance for a campaign.
