Defamation and Privacy

Defamation and Privacy

Our specialist team of media lawyers provide fast and clear advice to individuals, companies or other organisations who find themselves subject to adverse media interest or online attacks.

These days a well-established personal or professional reputation can be damaged in seconds by a single tweet or internet posting. We use the law of defamation (libel and slander), and implement proactive plans, to protect your reputation.  We also take action to ensure that your private life remains private.

We are regularly instructed by clients within the sports, media and entertainment related industries to advise them on their legal rights whether in relation to defamation, privacy, harassment, data protection or breach of confidence.  Much of our work is of course confidential; however our clients range from household names to lower-profile individuals and businesses who have no less of a right to their reputation and privacy, and include:-

  • Premier League and Championship football clubs, managers and players
  • Rugby union and league clubs
  • Ryder Cup golfers
  • International cricketers
  • World champion boxers
  • Sports broadcasters, commentators and media companies
  • Sports agents and management companies
  • International sports federations and national governing bodies
  • Multinational companies
  • Business people
  • Celebrities and private individuals
  • Political figures
  • PR agents

The team is vastly experienced in bringing and defending defamation and media claims and has litigated disputes in this field in the High Court and all the way up to the Court of Appeal.
