Our media work
Media markets are constantly evolving. The massive expansion of high speed internet has brought new technologies and services to consumers and fundamentally changed how we use media. It has also created opportunities for content providers, but challenged existing business models.
Our media practice helps broadcasters, publishers, governments and regulators across Europe meet the challenges of this rapidly evolving landscape. We support clients by applying economic insight to the distinctive features of media markets. We have a deep understanding of the commercial dynamics of media markets and draw on a wide range of policy, strategy, commercial and competition expertise.
We advise on:
- shaping media policy;
- creating successful strategies;
- developing effective regulatory policies; and
- enabling competition in media markets.
