Defamation and Privacy

We are defamation and privacy experts specialising in key areas of media law. In addition to defamation and privacy, we advise clients on data protection, media regulation, freedom of information and intellectual property.

Notable deals and highlights

  • We acted for a client who was hours from being named in an article in a national newspaper that alleged she was about to be charged with manslaughter. It was untrue, so we got an injunction to stop it.
  • We represented a member of the royal family of a European Country regarding inaccurate stories on a French TV channel.
  • We advised a client who was to be the subject of a very negative article in the national press. After discussions with us, the newspaper instead printed a positive article, generating free publicity for our client.
  • We represent a Premier League footballer who is a popular target for the press. We have successfully acted for him in various proceedings against newspapers and websites.
  • We acted for the claimant in the first substantive English Court decision on the issue of 'serious harm' following the introduction of the Defamation Act 2013.
