Press release – Clearcast’s International Ad Compliance Now Includes Legal Advice

28th July 2015

Clearcast has partnered with the Global Advertising Lawyers Alliance (GALA) to complete its range of International Ad Compliance services.

 

Clearcast is already known for its support to international advertisers in making ad compliance more accessible; it has a unique live and online training video library on ad regulations across the world, with expert speakers from the national self-regulators or equivalents. Clearcast also manages UK and international copy advice and clearances for any media – so it’s appropriate to add the last piece to the puzzle by including the management of legal advice.

 

The Chairman of GALA, Jeffrey A. Greenbaum, said that both GALA and Clearcast are in their own ways making it easier to be an international advertiser and that it therefore is a great opportunity to work together. He said that ‘advertising compliance across countries can be complicated and the new services offered by Clearcast and GALA are an  important step to support an ever changing industry’.

 

Chris Mundy,  MD of Clearcast, said ‘Our company continues to look at ways that it can better support the industry. When the IPA, the professional body for advertising, media and marcomms agencies in the UK suggested adding legal advice to our services,  we immediately thought it was a great idea and are pleased to see that GALA shares our ambitions.’

 

Please contact TV Admin Executive Danny Turner on 020 7339 4770 or email him via danny.turner@clearcast.co.uk with any queries about the new service.
