Carter-Ruck’s clients range from national governments, heads of state and other political figures, multinational companies, business people and celebrities, to lower-profile individuals and organisations who place no less a premium on their right to reputation and privacy.
Our reputation management and media law practice is the best known in the UK, encompassing defamation (libel and slander), privacy and Data Protection. Carter-Ruck also frequently represents organisations and individuals whose reputation, privacy or commercial confidentiality has come under attack from other individuals or entities.
Carter-Ruck has an unrivalled track record in preventing the publication of adverse or intrusive articles, broadcasts or images. Where it is not possible to stop publication completely, our reputation as the most respected media law firm in the UK means we are well placed to influence what is published or broadcast, often working closely with the client’s PR advisers.
When false or intrusive material has been published or broadcast, we are able to act quickly to have it removed, corrected, or take steps to reduce the visibility of the material online. We have an unrivalled record of obtaining prominent apologies for its clients. Many of Carter-Ruck’s cases have an international element requiring coordination across different jurisdictions; for this reason we are well-connected with specialist firms throughout the world.
