The Independent Media Agencies of Australia (IMAA) is launching a free webinar with media lawyer Stephen von Muenster to help members navigate the legal complexities of COVID-19.

Von Muenster, the principal of DVM Law, will host the webinar, as media agencies work hard to retain staff on often reduced hours and salaries as the pandemic continues to affect the advertising landscape.

Von Muenster has specialised in advertising, communications, marketing, promotions, PR and media law since 1998. He is legal counsel for The Communications Council, the Point-of-Purchase Advertising International Association, the Public Relations Council and the Media Federation of Australia and is a guest lecturer at the University of Sydney and UTS.

The webinar will be held at midday on Wednesday, April 22.

The IMAA launched the series of free professional advice webinars to provide expert guidance and strategies to navigate the financial, legal, economic and HR complexities as a result of COVID-19.

The first three webinars featured Marc Walsh from Altus Financial on government stimulus packages; Sky News commentator Paul Murray on the economic landscape; and how Facebook is managing its remote teams through COVID-19 with Harry Lowes and Ashley Jenkins.

The IMAA has several events and training programs under development.
