Defamation and media law are core areas of work at the Bar. This involves the provision of pre-publication advice in addition to litigation in areas such as obtaining urgent injunctive relief, suppression orders, and the operation of the Shield Law. Related complications involve privacy law, contempt, and privilege. This work is further complicated by the evolving area of such laws in the context of social media and digital technology.
