Carter-Ruck has again confirmed its top tier status for Defamation and Reputation Management in the latest Legal 500 directory.
Market commentators are quoted describing the firm as ‘Very much the market leaders in reputation management’. They add that ‘Carter-Ruck remains at the very top of the tree for media and communications/reputation management work. They have huge amounts of experience together with the resources to do a thorough job on every case’, that ‘There is no better claimant law firm’ and that ‘they also do media cases for defendants… a safe port of call for blue chip companies.’ The guide notes that the firm attracts an increasing number of clients from the Middle East.
The ‘hugely experienced, likeable and savvy’ Nigel Tait and the ‘calm and measured’ Adam Tudor lead a team that acts in an extensive number of libel and privacy complaints’. Nigel and Adam also appear in the Legal 500 “Hall of Fame” as well as the Elite Leading Lawyers List.
The firm ‘remains at the very top of the tree’ and ‘fields a strong team’ that also includes ‘pre-publication expert’ Alasdair Pepper and Rebecca Toman, who ‘acts for ultra-high-net-worth individuals, entrepreneurs and celebrities.’
Claire Gill stands out for her role as lead partner in the landmark “right to be forgotten” case NT1/NT2 v Google where she successfully obtained an order to remove the claimants’ private information from the search engine in a novel High Court ruling. Senior Associate Helena Shipman‘continues to have significant impact on the practice and demonstrates ‘excellent client care’ in her area of expertise; misuse of private information and breach of the data protection act.’
