Hamlins’ phone-hacking lawyers have been in the High Court this week for a further hearing against News Group Newspapers, publisher of The Sun and the News of the World.

Evidence relating to the destruction and concealment of emails will be considered, particularly with reference to James Murdoch and Rebekah Brooks, and their email deletion policy.

21st Century Fox is currently bidding for Sky, although The Department for Culture Media & Standards has indicated it may intervene on plurality grounds.

Phone hacking at The Sun and News of the World is alleged by Claimants to have taken place 1998-2010.

Hamlins’ phone-hacking lawyers are Lead Solicitors for phone-hacking claims against The Sun and News of the World, and also represent phone-hacking victims in the claims against The Mirror, Sunday Mirror and The People. No win, no fee agreements are frequently relied on in these claims.
