Media: Content and Disputes

We have acted in many of the major libel, privacy, publication and contempt cases in recent years, including headline trials and appeals at all levels including the Supreme Court.

Acting for national newspapers, film companies, TV broadcasters, digital news and entertainment channels, book publishers and magazine titles, we provide a comprehensive service for clients which includes litigation, pre-publication advice and media regulation.

The team has expertise in handling demands by law enforcement agencies for journalistic material, in all civil and criminal courts. We understand the editorial and commercial pressures on the media, and specialise in working with clients to tight deadlines whether imposed by business demands or the courts.

We also provide reputation management and data protection advice to companies and individuals.

Both of the leading independent legal directories have placed us in their top ranked media litigation teams for several years.
