We have a strong reputation in all aspects of Media Law. This is a specialised area in which we have considerable experience, covering issues such as
- Reputation Management
- Misuse of Information
- Privacy (including phone hacking)
- Defamation – including libel and slander
We have been at the forefront of the allegations of phone hacking against News International and Mirror Group Newspapers, and have successfully represented a number of claimants.
We successfully represented Alan Yentob and Paul Gascoigne in claims of Phone Hacking against the Mirror Group Newspapers securing over £250,000 damages in May 2015.
We have acted for a number of high profile clients concerning their reputation, breaches of privacy, libel or slander, including sports personalities, agents and politicians.
A good reputation can take a long time to establish, but can be damaged overnight by the publication of a defamatory article. In such a situation clear and expert advice is necessary. We can help you protect your reputation and privacy, and where necessary or appropriate can seek pre-publication injunctions.
