Every day, Carter-Ruck helps clients who are threatened with unwanted media interest, both in the UK and worldwide.
The firm has an unrivalled track record in using its legal and strategic expertise to prevent the publication of adverse or intrusive articles, broadcasts or images. Where it is not possible to stop publication completely, Carter-Ruck’s reputation as the most respected media law firm in the UK means that we are well placed to influence what is published or broadcast, often working closely with the client’s PR advisers.
Reflecting the round-the-clock, often international, nature of the news and media cycle, our partners are available to clients on a 24/7 basis, 365 days a year.
While litigation should always be a last resort, the firm has a formidable record of securing – often in a matter of hours – court injunctions prohibiting publication, particularly where the proposed story involves private or commercially confidential information.
