The advertising industry

For almost 100 years, Bull & Co has figured among the leading law firms in advertising law, and has provided assistance to the country’s largest advertising agencies.  This is still the case, and our commitment to the operators in this industry will remain one of the most important points of focus for us in times to come.

We assist large and medium-sized Norwegian and foreign advertising agencies and advertisers.    We also advise owners of large international social media, media companies, start-up companies, TV and film producers, international brands, etc. on dealing with the current Norwegian rules on marketing, trademark use, design law and copyright.

Through our international network of lawyers, GALA, we work with experts in the field of advertising and marketing law the world over.

We assist among other things with issues relating to:

  • Preliminary assessments of texts, images and other mediums in advertising campaigns, at all stages from the drawing board to questions pertaining to freedom of expression, copyright and the Marketing Act
  • Advertising aimed at consumers (direct marketing, advertising aimed at children, sweepstakes, contests, deceptive marketing, etc.)
  • Food labelling, cosmetics etc.
  • Unfair imitation and copying
  • Dispute resolution and litigation, including complaints to the Consumer Ombudsman, the Advertising Standards Authority, the Competition Commission, the Conciliation Board and the courts
