Oliver is an Associate in Farrer & Co's Media and Reputation Management practice. He provides specialist advice to high profile individuals, corporations and institutions on a wide range of contentious matters including privacy, defamation, cyber security, data protection, harassment and blackmail.

Oliver works closely with cyber specialists, investigative firms and PR advisors to develop effective media strategies for clients to manage and respond to sensitive issues where there is reputational risk. He has a particular specialism in advising those in the film, television and theatre industry who are the subject of unwanted attention whether from the mainstream media, online attacks or obsessed individuals.

Earlier this year, Oliver spent time on secondment at Greenberg Glusker, a law firm based in Los Angeles, and has previously spent time in-house on secondment with the PGA European Tour.

Oliver also has experience advising clients on wider contentious matters and advises both claimants and defendants on all stages of the litigation process from pre-action up to trial. He is a regular contributor to legal journals and other publications.
