MDR Law, LLC works collaboratively with media companies on their investigative and other enterprise reporting. The firm partners with its media clients to ensure they can publish hard-hitting journalism safely and without undue threat of legal liability.

Many lawyers instinctively say “no” to risky stories. MDR Law’s approach is to find a path to get the story published or broadcast, but to do so safely. The firm facilitates - rather than impedes - stories that expose corruption, waste and fraud and has a history of assisting reporters in publishing award-winning investigative journalism without legal repercussions for the client.

In addition to providing pre-publication review, MDR Law advises clients on a wide range of privacy, news-gathering, FOIA, intellectual property and other issues impacting media companies. The firm also assists clients in obtaining and negotiating media perils, directors and officers and other forms of corporate insurance coverage.

At MDR Law, clients receive big firm quality work at a reasonable price. The firm doesn’t have a costly infrastructure that must be passed along to clients through ever-increasing billable rates. The firm employs a fair and flexible pricing structure that works for everyone and allows journalists to seek assistance as necessary without fear of “running up the bill.”
