Practice Areas

Justin Quill is one of Australia’s most experienced media law practitioners, practising exclusively in the area for 24 years.

Justin is highly sought after by high profile media entities for urgent advice on significant matters. He is also extremely well regarded as a litigator and a strategic thinker.

Justin specialises in defamation, contempt of court, suppression orders, urgent injunctions, confidential information claims, freedom of information requests, journalists’ sources, prepublication advice, defending breach of legislation claims and racial vilification claims.

He provides 24/7 for prepublication advice on a full range of mediums (print, online, television and radio) to most of Australia’s largest media organisations.

His passion for free speech motivates him to work hard for his clients and his love of the subject means he has developed a deep understanding of the importance of his clients’ right to publish. This makes him the choice of high profile clients and organisations when these principles and livelihoods are at stake.

Justin’s clients include both major Australian newspaper publishers – News Corporation and Nine Entertainment, all three commercial television networks in Australia (Channels Seven, Nine and Ten), national radio stations, AFL Media and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

“Clients come to us for quality advice, not just good service. I was well trained and work really hard for my clients – we think those factors make our team the best at what we do.”
