Max Campbell specialises in reputation and crisis management, acting for both claimants and defendants in libel, privacy, data protection, and harassment claims.
A recent highlight was acting for the barrister Jane Heybroek in her successful defence of a libel claim brought by the television personalities Rachel Riley and Tracy Ann Oberman. Following a favourable outcome in an early determination of meaning, opinion, and defamatory tendency (Riley & Anor v Heybroek  EWHC 1259 (QB)), the Claimants withdrew the action and agreed to pay contributions towards Ms Heybroek’s legal costs. The outcome was widely reported in the mainstream media.
Areas of particular interest include online defamation and harassment, stalking, ‘revenge porn’, and the ‘right to be forgotten’. Max also has a wealth of experience of both criminal and general civil litigation, enabling him to assist people in respect of a wide array of complex and sensitive disputes.
Long-standing clients include C-suite executives, journalists, and other lawyers. Max enjoys higher rights of audience in civil proceedings, and has appeared as a solicitor-advocate before Judges in the High Court.
