Legal & Compliance Service

The IPM’s renowned and respected Legal & Compliance Service provides guidance on the law and the Codes of Practice which govern the UK’s marketing industry and promotional copy clearance to help agencies and brand owners sleep more comfortably at night.  

We understand the pressures and constraints that marketers work under and we endeavour, wherever possible, to offer a one working day turnaround on our copy clearance service.   

The service is provided by consultants with many years' combined experience in promotional marketing. 

We offer fixed costs per enquiry, which represent a substantial saving on standard law firm rates.  

The Legal & Compliance service is available to both members and non-members, but members can make significant savings by buying cases in bulk in advance.  

We also offer a separate international legal & compliance service which covers countries outside of the UK since these are not covered by the IPM Legal & Compliance team. Please enquire for further details.
