Practices

Advertising, Promotion, and Entertainment Law

Weaving in a seamless integration of business, intellectual property law, and litigation, Chambliss lawyers manage communication issues for clients across a wide variety of industries, including advertising and media, financial services, automotive and recreation. With ever-changing legal landscape, the Chambliss team stays informed to ensure clients comply with current industry standards and local, state and federal laws and guidelines.

From reviewing national advertising campaigns to working with Chattanooga-based advertising agencies, Chambliss advises clients on the wide and complex spectrum of issues affecting this area. Chambliss counsels on deceptive advertising, including comparative ads, testimonials, endorsements and labeling, consumer contests and sweepstakes, premium offers, coupons, wireless marketing, managing user-generated content and other social media issues, text messaging, and marketing to children.

The firm also consults with agencies of all sizes on issues ranging from protecting pitches, client, freelancer and other services agreements to rights of publicity, licenses and the fair-use doctrine. In addition, Chambliss lawyers help protect clients’ intellectual property by working closely with the firm’s Intellectual Property Section regarding protection and licensing of creative content, nondisclosure of proprietary information during production, as well as protection, policing and licensing of trademarks.

Chambliss routinely presents in-house training and educational seminars to industry groups, advertising agencies and corporations. Please contact Chambliss if you are interested in having this team host a complimentary seminar or present to your organization.
