We are based in Farringdon in Central London. Our ethos is simple: we work with you to identify your objectives and deliver the most effective and efficient outcome at a fair and competitive price.

Our clients tell us they like our straightforward and transparent approach. Whether it is defending a prosecution or bringing a claim, we pride ourselves on the quality of advice and representation we provide our clients.


Our clients

Our clients appreciate that having the right lawyers can make all the difference. They want clear and honest advice. They want lawyers to consider the best possible strategy for their particular circumstances, rather than seeing their problem as just another case. We understand this.

In many instances we offer fixed-fee consultations. A consultation will help you understand the legal and practical issues relating to your case and allow you to make an informed decision about what action to take. If you are looking for a law firm that will fight for you and empower you to make considered choices, please get in touch with our knowledgeable and approachable team today.


What we do

Media and Communications Law

Defamation

Defamation

In today’s interconnected world, reputations that have taken years to establish can be damaged within minutes by a few mouse-clicks.  Defamatory publications can not only be costly, in terms of loss of revenue/employment opportunity, but can also cause considerable distress and embarrassment.  It is therefore vital to act quickly before a damaging publication spreads.  As experts in English libel law, our defamation solicitors are well-versed to help.
