Within: Defamation and privacy

5RB is well-established for handling a wide range of media and communication law instructions including defamation, privacy, and data privacy. Described as a 'strong set with a number of experienced counsel in this area', chambers was, of late, involved in several extremely high-profile cases including Sir Cliff Richard v BBC, where Godwin Busuttil led by Justin Rushbrooke QC acted for the claimant. In Nick Brown MP v Faber & Faber and Tom Bower, Adrienne Page QC and Jacob Dean acted for the claimant against the acclaimed author and publisher of Broken Vows; Andrew Caldecott QC and Clara Hamer represented the defendants. Since the resolution of this case, Caldecott QC and Hamer have joined chambers from the now dissolved One Brick Court. They arrived with Aidan Eardley, Jane Phillips, Jonathan Scherbel-Ball, Kate Wilson, and Ben Gallop, bolstering the set's ranks and cementing its place as 'the market leader in the field of defamation and privacy law'.
