ACHIEVING SIGNIFICANT WINS FOR A GLOBAL MEDIA ASSOCIATION
How We Did It
A global media association, working with members of our team, scored an impressive victory in Washington during a merger between two large broadcasting companies. We secured a witness slot for our client in a key congressional hearing and prepared the client to effectively convey the distribution challenges producers face in an increasingly consolidated media space. These views were also successfully conveyed to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which was concurrently reviewing the merger. The congressional and FCC spotlight gave the association an opportunity to directly engage the merging companies on the important issue of access to distribution platforms. Since then, our team has secured other wins for the client, including a significant extension of a tax incentive to encourage film production in the U.S.
