Response to Threats of Legal Proceedings

If a programme, online content, a trail, on or off-air marketing or a press release or billing gives rise to a threat of legal proceedings in writing or otherwise (including what purports to be an injunction or notice of an injunction), advice must be immediately sought from the legal & compliance department.

Under no circumstances must a reply be provided without advice first being sought from a programme lawyer.

Out of hours, contact the Duty Lawyer, seeĀ 'The Legal & Compliance Department'.
