Subpoenas & Reporters' Privilege

In recent years, journalists, news organizations and publishers have faced increasing pressure to reveal unpublished and confidential source information. Our media litigators have extensive experience at all levels of the federal and state courts in defending the rights of reporters and publishers to protect their sources and unpublished material under the First Amendment and state reporters’ shield laws.

In addition to being recognized for our deep experience in this area, our media attorneys have written and spoken extensively on the need to protect journalists’ rights. One of our partners even authored Washington State's reporter shield law.
