The Lawyer has shortlisted SM&B’s media litigation team for the prestigious “Litigation Team of the Year” award.
The selection follows the team’s win against Andrew Mitchell MP over the Plebgate controversy late last year. The MP brought his libel claim against News Group Newspapers Limited over an article in The Sun. The claim was successfully defended and the trial was one of the most high profile libel trials of recent times.

The awards ceremony will be held in London on 23 June 2015.
