What our barristers do
We advise and act in libel and slander matters, whether pre-publication, pre-action or during the litigation phase. Our barristers deal with all aspects of defamation law including jurisdiction, serious harm, statutory and common law defences, damages, injunctions and wider relief.
Who our barristers act for
We act for private individuals, corporate bodies, journalists and media organisations, MPs, political parties, charities, free speech organisations, NGOs central and devolved government departments, local authorities, law enforcement agencies, NHS trusts, education authorities, professional regulatory bodies as well as professional and amateur sports bodies.
Where our barristers act
We principally act in the High Court (Media & Communications List) as well as in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. Our barristers also appear in public inquiries (Robert Jay QC, now Mr Justice Jay, was counsel to the Leveson Inquiry and Lord Dyson investigated and reported to the BBC on its 1995 Panorama interview with the Princess of Wales).
