Welcome to Sports and Media Libel and Privacy

The ever-growing media interest in sports people both on and off the field can cause serious issues for today's sporting figures.

Add to traditional print and broadcast media the array of social media from Twitter and Facebook to YouTube and Vine and you have the potential for damaging and untrue stories to be spread worldwide in the blink of an eye.

As a result, issues such as reputation management have come to the forefront for the modern sports person.

In such situations, it helps to know where you stand – and what you can do to fight back.

Our experienced team can advise you on a range of issues including:

  • Defamation and libel
  • Privacy rights
  • Injunctions
  • Image protection

Our team can help up everything from drawing up appropriate agreements for protecting your privacy issues to advising on libel and defamation actions.

Members of the team also have experience on dealing with issues surrounding social media, such as disputes on Twitter.

For more information on how we can help, please get in touch.
