She has been instructed as a junior in two privacy and libel trials over the past year and, in early 2015, acted on the Media Lawyers Association’s intervention in the Coventry v Lawrence appeal at the Supreme Court, which addressed the compatibility of the pre-LASPO CFA regime with the ECHR. Chloe regularly provides pre-publication advice to national newspapers, broadcasters, and publishers including the Times, the Sunday Times, Harper Collins and the BBC. Prior to her career at the Bar, Chloe trained as a corporate solicitor at Linklaters LLP, and served as Lord Neuberger’s judicial assistant (then Master of the Rolls) at the Court of Appeal. She assisted the Super-injunctions Committee to produce its report in May 2011, including drafting the Model Order now included in the CPR Practice Guidance for privacy injunctions. Chloe is a contributing author to two of the leading textbooks in her specialist fields: Gatley on Libel and Slander (Sweet & Maxwell, 12th ed, 2013) and The Law of Privacy and the Media, Warby, Moreham and Christie (OUP, 3rd ed, due late 2015). Chloe formed part of the Civil Justice Council’s Working Group on costs in defamation proceedings, which reported in April 2013. Chloe is public access qualified and able to take instructions directly from lay clients.
