Wyche’s media and communications practice is limited to support of freedom of the press and access to public information. We do not represent plaintiffs in defamation or invasion of privacy lawsuits against the media, nor do we represent governmental entities seeking to block access to public information or proceedings.
For decades, Wyche has been successful in the defense of First Amendment freedoms and has won many landmark cases, at both the trial and appellate levels, in both state and federal courts. Our clients include major media companies across the United States, in print, broadcast and internet media.
We also have considerable experience in corporate matters on behalf of media clients. For many years we served as general counsel to a national diversified publicly traded media company, now part of one of the leading media companies in the United States. We continue to represent other media companies concerning general matters, ranging from acquisitions to employment issues.
