I specialise in defamation (libel and slander), privacy, and data protection law. I am recommended as a leading barrister in these areas in the legal directories Legal 500, Chambers & Partners and Who's Who Legal, which variously describe me as "superb", "excellent, both on technical issues and overall strategy" and "extremely pleasant to work with".

I have acted in a huge range of disputes including many high profile, high value, and complex cases. Well-known individuals for whom I have acted include Wayne Rooney, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Peter Andre, and former Conservative Party co-treasurer Peter Cruddas. I currently act for the Mirror group of newspapers in the ongoing phone-hacking litigation, relating to claims brought by dozens of celebrities, and have acted in libel, privacy and data protection claims for other publishers.

Related areas in which I also have particular expertise include copyright, the misuse of confidential information, and harassment (via email, the internet or other publication).
