Before joining Lewis Silkin, I spent five years as a barrister at leading media chambers One Brick Court specialising in defamation, privacy and confidentiality issues. During my time at the Bar I acted for politicians, celebrities and sports stars, including for the footballer Bruce Grobbelaar in his libel action against The Sun newspaper over allegations of match fixing.
At Lewis Silkin I’ve continued my interest and expertise in reputation management work, now working mainly for brands and corporations who require assistance with their dealings with the media, including traditional media, online media and social networking sites. My clients range from major multinationals to start-ups, including household name brands, leading marcoms agencies and media companies.
I understand the need to act quickly and efficiently when dealing with media issues. Recent work includes the seeking of an urgent injunction to restrain the broadcast of a television programme (Viagogo v Channel 4) and acting for a multinational company in a Press Complaints Commission complaint against a national newspaper. I’ve been recommended in the legal directories for defamation and reputation management and listed in the Lawyer Monthly Magazine’s ‘Leading Lawyer 100’ 2011 Guide for media and entertainment.
