Our reputation was acknowledged at the Asia MENA Counsel Awards where we were named “TMT Law Firm of the Year”.

Eversheds Sutherland advises on all legal issues affecting advertising, marketing and sponsorship campaigns, including strategy and providing fast copy clearance to ensure advertisements and packaging comply with the relevant advertising codes and regulations. We also advise on intellectual property rights relevant to advertising, including securing of image rights and dealing with trade mark infringement, passing off and endorsement issues.

Data protection laws, and increasing regulatory and commercial pressure on the use of personal information, are vital issues that impact every organisation. We regularly advise on this rapidly evolving area of the law, including all data privacy in Hong Kong and Asia, and in relation to cross-border data flows and direct marketing.
