Media, information and communications disputes


We have a wealth of experience in dealing with specialist media, information and communications disputes.

Our lawyers are instructed by household names who include heads of state, members of various royal families, politicians, sports stars, celebrities, and business people, as well as individuals who are less well-known.

We also represent groups of claimants in large collective media, information and communications claims.

Other clients include companies that wish to commence or defend actions, particularly in relation to their reputations.

We specialise in cases relating to:

  • defamation;
  • malicious falsehoods;
  • negligent misstatements;
  • misuse of private information;
  • trade secrets;
  • breaches of confidence;
  • data protection;
  • the right to be forgotten;
  • harassment;
  • blackmail;
  • copyright; and
  • passing off.

We also deal with regulatory matters, including before the Independent Press Standards Organisation, the Information Commissioner’s Office, and Ofcom.

In addition, we act as global counsel for media, information and communications disputes that span various jurisdictions.
