We are recognised as one of the leading UK law practices for defending defamation and privacy cases.

Our principal, David Price QC, is one of the few solicitor QCs. He consistently tops the rankings of defamation and privacy lawyers.

We act for a wide variety of clients: from national newspapers to ordinary members of the public. The common feature of our clients is that they face litigation as a result of something that they have written or spoken. The right decisions need to be made and implemented as soon as possible.

To fight or to settle? And if to settle, how to do so as painlessly as possible? Making the wrong move can be costly and humiliating. We bring our experience and expertise to the difficult issues facing defendants in a challenging and constantly evolving legal environment.

We have been involved in numerous landmark and high profile cases. When our clients choose to fight, we defend their freedom of expression to the hilt.
