The Media law team at Macpherson Kelley has been ranked in the top Band 1 category for Media law for the eighth year running in Australia by legal guide Chambers and Partners.

Macpherson Kelley is one of only three firms in Australia listed in the Band 1 category for Media law.

The ranking in the Chambers Asia-Pacific 2020 guide reflects the leading role Macpherson Kelley plays acting for Australia’s largest media companies.

Principal Lawyer Justin Quill was also ranked Band 1 in Media while Principal Lawyer John-Paul Cashen was ranked in Band 2, jumping from “up and coming” last year.

The guide quotes one media client saying: “Macpherson Kelley are experts in this area of law, providing both advice and advocacy, and we enjoy working with their team. Its work for our media organisation has been first class. In both urgent matters and long-term strategic disputes, Macpherson Kelley have given timely, well-considered advice that understands the needs of our business.”

Another client says: “They have a very high level of performance, both technically and practically. Their level of expertise and ability to deliver practical and useful advice at competitive rates would place them among the top firms practising in these areas of expertise.”

Macpherson Kelley CEO Steve Parker congratulated Justin and John-Paul on their rankings and the Media team for their work establishing the firm’s reputation as who media companies can turn to when they need help.

Macpherson Kelley’s Media team works on a wide range of matters that impact on the media including contempt of court, freedom of information, copyright, breaches of confidence and protecting journalist sources.

They have been involved in significant high profile matters including helping expose the “Lawyer X” scandal which has prompted a Royal Commission in Victoria into how police handle informants and representing 49 journalists and news outlets against contempt of court claims connected to articles about the Cardinal George Pell sex abuse trial.

Justin and John-Paul also regularly provide expert commentary on legal matters affecting the media.
