  • Defamation

    The law of defamation aims to protect reputation, and applies to both individuals and companies. 

  • Misuse of private information

    The law protects people's right to privacy in a number of ways.

  • Malicious falsehood

    The law of malicious falsehood aims to protect economic interests. Malicious falsehood claims are sometimes made in tandem with, or as an alternative to, defamation claims. 

  • Harassment

    Under the Protection from Harassment Act of 1997 (PHA) harassing someone can be a criminal offence and can give rise to civil action. 

  • Remedies for patent infringement

    Businesses found to have infringed patent rights can face potentially substantial bills for compensation and a block on the manufacture, supply and sale of infringing products.

  • Responsibility for paying costs in patent litigation

    Businesses that are involved in patent litigation incur costs when engaging legal advisers. Some of these costs may be recoverable from the other side, but there are rules around costs that parties to litigation should familiarise themselves with.
