Media Law

From legal disputes arising from Social Media to Defamation, Canary Wharf Chambers can assist.


In the Media Age of the Twenty First Century and with the rise of Social Media, clients all need to ensure the protection of both their personal private data and their reputations more than ever.


Damage to clients or even others can be done at the touch of a button.  It is therefore essential to have both a prevention strategy when engaging in Social Media and be able to respond to problems quickly and appropriately if they occur.  It may be the situation that someone has posted inaccurate information on Twitter, Facebook or a Blog about your business; or that an inaccurate article has appeared in a local newspaper.  Barristers and Attorneys at Canary Wharf Chambers can help.


With the additional benefit of access to an international legal practice, clients using the services of Canary Wharf Chambers include local startups and multi-national corporations seeking to enforce their legal protections whilst starting or growing their operations overseas.
