3PB Direct

An individual’s reputation – which may have taken many years to build – can be ruined very quickly by defamatory comments made about you.

Whether this is libel (in writing; perhaps in the press or via social media platforms) or slander (defamatory comments which are spoken) 3PB’s specialist barristers have many years of experience of defending those whose privacy has been invaded and reputation damaged.

Many of our clients are well known public figures from the fields of sport, television, film, music and others. However the impact of defamatory action can be just as hurtful, stressful and potentially costly for any individual whether renowned or famous or not.

Our specialist barristers are experts in privacy laws and regularly both prosecute and defend in cases involving invasions of privacy, defamation and harassment.

With tighter laws now in place to ensure that companies must properly protect individuals’ personal data, organisations have a duty to respect your ‘right to be forgotten’ as well as just to make sure that your data is held safely and securely and not shared inappropriately and without your permission. Where you may have made a request to exercise your right to be forgotten but this is not being carried out, our barristers are well placed to represent you.
