The Defamation team, led by Partner Jayne Clemens, is known for advising with sensitivity and discretion.
As a firm, we have an excellent and long standing reputation for advising high net worth families, private trusts, family offices and individuals on a range of issues. We understand the importance of maintaining their reputation and privacy. We offer practical advice and solutions aimed at swiftly and discretely managing matters without drawing further undue attention.
We have extensive experience advising on defamation, breach of copyright, misuse of confidential information, data protection breaches, privacy issues, and harassment.
We act swiftly to remove defamatory content and/or private information from social media platforms, web pages and across the wider international and national media (online and hard copy). Where necessary, we work with our clients to swiftly bring claims in the High Court.
We also regularly manage press published during High court litigation, advise on injunctive relief for misuse of confidential information, and breach of restrictive covenants.
