Online and social media lawyers
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.

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.
