Freeths - Law firm

Platinum Connect Reputation Protection, Defamation & Privacy Services

What is involved?

Your right to reputation is enshrined as a human right under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). It competes in equal measure with another’s right to freedom of expression, under Article 10 ECHR. The balancing act between these two rights underpins the law relating to reputation management in the UK.

Our dedicated IP & Media team are experts in advising on this balance of rights in any given scenario. Our expertise is nationwide and includes advice on all areas affecting reputation including defamation (libel and slander), trade libel (malicious falsehood), harassment, misuse of private information (breach of privacy), breach of confidence; and breach of your personal data under data protection legislation.
