Rebecca Toman - Carter-Ruck

Within: Reputation management

The defamation & reputation management practice at Carter-Ruck is a safe port of call for blue chip companies and handles an increasing number of clients from the Middle East.  The 'hugely experienced, likeable and savvy' Nigel Tait and the 'calm and measured' Adam Tudor lead a team that acts in an extensive number of libel and privacy complaints. The firm 'remains at the very top of the tree' and fields a strong team that also includes pre-publication expert Alasdair Pepper and Rebecca Toman, who acts for ultra high-net-worth individuals, entrepreneurs and celebrities. Claire Gill stands out for her role as lead partner in the landmark "right to be forgotten" case NT1/NT2 v Google where she successfully obtained an order to remove the claimants' private information from the search engine in a novel High Court ruling. Associate Helena Shipman continues to have significant impact on the practice and demonstrates 'excellent client care' in her area of expertise; misuse of private information and breach of the data protection act.
