Privacy Lawyers

The news has been full of invasions of privacy in the last few years – phone hacking, super-injunctions, twitter revelations, blackmail, and kiss-and-tell stories.

We have acted for and against the media on several high profile injunction and privacy claims.

Our lawyers have advised clients on all of these issues. We have obtained urgent injunctions to prevent stories being published which would have had a disastrous effect on the personal and business lives of our clients.

Injunctions

Our team of specialists regularly work to tight deadlines, being on call to advise clients facing a media or public relations crisis. The need for advice on media and publicity issues is often urgent and time is of the essence, so our team of lawyers is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We have successfully kept a number of damaging or untrue stories out of the media or limited further coverage by swift resolution. We obtained an injunction for one footballer whilst he was actually on the pitch in a Premiership match!

Freedom of Information and Data Protection

Our team has experience of making and responding to data and information requests under the Data Protection and Freedom of Information legislation.
