Highlights for clerking, defamation, privacy and data protection
29 members of chambers are ranked in Defamation and Privacy demonstrating our breadth of talent.
With 11 members of 5RB ranked in Data Protection, our “barristers are capable of handling a range of complex cases brought under the Data Protection Act. The team offers substantial expertise in matters arising out of mass data breaches and also has experience advising on freedom of information requests. It is perhaps the strongest set in the market for claims brought against the media under both data protection and defamation law, as demonstrated by recent instructions for the Duchess of Sussex, and government departments, in highly publicised cases. The barristers’ varied client base encompasses media organisations, leading technology companies and high-profile individuals.”
