Media Broadcast & DWF

Media BroadcastCologne-based Media Broadcast, with its broadcasting history that dates back 100 years, is the leading technical full-service provider in the German broadcasting and media industry. The company provides solutions for transmission networks, broadcasting and satellite.

Soccer fans will remember Media Broadcast’s TV transmission of the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany and the operation of a state-of-the-art, fibre-optic TV network at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa to link ten stadiums with the international broadcasting centre.  Media Broadcast’s annual revenues amount to EUR 300 million.

The business challenge                                           

Media Broadcast knows its goals and acts upon them. Consequently, DWF had to act both quickly and conscientiously to address their needs, assembling highly skilled lawyers from our IT, corporate and litigation teams.

Our approach

Our first priority was to develop a deep understanding of Media Broadcast‘s business. We made sure that everyone within the team understood the company’s business needs and goals which helped us to provide high-quality legal support, as our advice was always aligned with the business interest of the company.

The outcome

Today DWF is Media Broadcast’s trusted advisor on a wide range of issues. Our familiarity with their business repeatedly proves to be an essential element in every area of legal advice that we provide to them.

What Media Broadcast think

“Effective problem solvers and good and honest communicators. The people at DWF are not only excellent lawyers and the fact that they have been supporting us for years now makes it much easier for them to understand the business side as well. This is, in our view, what makes them different from other law firms – and honestly, one of the main reasons why we like to come back to them with so many of  our legal needs.” Media Broadcast
