Online and social media

It can be a legal and practical challenge to protect your privacy online, especially on social media. Our team is skilled in handling problems such as online abuse and blackmail, and help victims to achieve meaningful results and long-lasting protection.

The internet, social media and apps that now reach far in to your personal and professional life, present unique legal and practical challenges in protecting your privacy.

Modern media and communication tools can inflict immediate and lasting damage on a global scale, to a personal reputation, private life or professional brand.
 

Allegations can be spread to millions in seconds; libels are made under the cloak of anonymity; tech giants such as Google, Twitter and Facebook have become first-line adjudicators on the merits of a complaint.

We have extensive experience of dealing with the problems presented to those abused online, including harassment, blackmail, online bullying, trolling and sexting, using both legal remedies and our substantial practical experience to achieve meaningful results and long-lasting protection.
