Chambers & Partners

We always take a practical approach to clients’ problems. Whether advising on defamation, a large corporate transaction or a complex piece of litigation, we are proactive in finding solutions to complicated legal issues and minimising damage to your reputation.

Our advice

Our specialists regularly work to tight deadlines, being on call to advise clients who are 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 are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Our claimant work also remains strong and we advise a wide range of individuals, corporations and national institutions. By carefully managing their media profiles, we have successfully kept a number of damaging or untrue stories out of the media or limited further coverage by swift resolution.

The group is at the forefront of developments in the media sector and plays an active role in determining the key issues and changes affecting it. A significant proportion of our work also involves working closely with, or advising, PR consultants.

As a top tier firm in the area of defamation and privacy law, we are one of the country’s leading advisors to national print and online publishers, as well as a number of TV and radio companies, and can use our experience and understanding of that industry for the benefit of all our clients. Our expertise is derived from our client list (including Emap, Bauer Media, Haymarket, and The Economist) and successful track record in protecting and managing our clients’ brands and reputations.
