Boston, MA (January 2, 2008)— Mark Sableman, Partner in Thompson Coburn, has been recognized as a leader in Advertising and Marketing Law by being selected as an author in the recently released book, Advertising and Marketing Litigation Best Practices, published by Aspatore Books.
Advertising and Marketing Litigation Best Practices, ISBN: 9781596228108, is an authoritative, insider’s perspective on top strategies for understanding the advertising and marketing legal framework. The book features partners and chairs from some of the nation’s leading law firms, who guide the reader through the intricacies of litigating and advertising and marketing disputes, and provide strategies for implementing advertising review systems to avoid future conflicts. From understanding a client’s goals and analyzing the nature of a controversy to evaluating the financial dimensions of a potential litigation, these lawyers offer tips for deciding when to settle versus litigate, and walk through the various methods for resolving disputes.
These top lawyers provide strategies for obtaining proper documentation, understanding and complying with government regulations, and mitigating risks. Finally, these leaders offer tips for defining expectations, planning defensively, implementing a proper strategy, and keeping abreast of change. The different niches represented and the breadth of perspectives presented enable readers to get inside some of the great legal minds of today as these experienced lawyers offer up their thoughts around the keys to success within this dynamic field of law.
Sableman’s chapter, “Assessing Consumer Understanding of the Advertisement’s Message,” addresses a crucial step in advertising law – understanding of how consumers perceive the advertisement in question. In advertising law, courts and agencies must analyze radio and television commercials, print ads, direct-mail pieces, and Internet ads from the perspective of the ordinary consumer. “Lawyers, judges, and business executives – all of whom tend to be highly educated and literal-minded – often find it hard to understand the ordinary consumer’s perspective,” Sableman notes. “But advertising law mandates that perspective, so we often need to utilize consumer surveys and experts in consumer behavior. By using such experts, we can avoid problems before publication, or, in litigation, focus on what the ads in question really say to the consumer.”
Sableman’s chapter describes the legal significance of consumer understandings, ways to discern and measure those understandings (such as surveys), and various techniques for resolving advertising issues and disputes. It discusses the wide panoply of advertising law and highlights recent trends, including legal challenges to various internet advertising techniques.
