Practice Areas

Chambers & Partners’ 2018 Defamation & Privacy Junior of the Year, David’s practice encompasses the full ambit of media, entertainment and information law. He has appeared in a host of the highest profile defamation and privacy actions of recent years and consistently acts on behalf of leading firms of solicitors in the field and for a large number of the most prominent media organisations and companies (including Associated Newspapers, Facebook, Google, Guardian News & Media and Times Newspapers). Equally highly regarded for his work on data protection and breach of confidence matters, he has represented major tech companies, multinational corporations, government agencies and the media in cases heard before both the courts and the Information Tribunal. He also holds a very substantial practice in the fields of public and entertainment law, where he regularly advises the media regulator, Ofcom, and has acted for the United Kingdom Government in the successful defence of two of the most important UK media law cases to reach the European Court of Human Rights in recent years.
