Media lawyer and speaker
Andrea has been a solicitor for over 20 years and has specialised exclusively in the area of media and entertainment law since 1998. She worked for 6 years as part of RTÉ’s in-house legal team before establishing her own specialist media law practice in 2003. She is a consultant with the Media Group of Eugene F. Collins, Solicitors in Dublin. She advises a range of clients on defamation, privacy, copyright, media content acquisition and licensing as well as data protection issues. In 2011, Oak Tree Press (www.oaktreepress.com) published Andrea’s guidebook to media law, Quick Win Media Law Ireland – Your Top 100 Media Law Questions Answered (available in paperback, e book and as an App). In recent years, Andrea has taken a particular interest in the legal implications of social media use.
