Everyone is talking about ‘fake news’, but what is it?

Kingsley Napley has a long history of acting in high profile matters where the media spotlight has been shone at our clients. When a crisis or potential crisis hits, clients and their advisors turn to us.
Our “razor sharp” expertise and the established trust we have built with our clients, reassures our clients that we understand what needs to be done, and get it done.
While we are determined and rigorous in delivering the best outcome for our clients, we do this in a way that is reassuringly calm and discreet. Our approach is intelligent, tough and proportionate. The reputation and media team specialises in defamation, privacy, harassment, business branding, and media agreements. We act for individuals and businesses with both claimant and defendants, which provides us with a special insight into resolving disputes quickly and efficiently.
The team is led by Charlotte Harris and Gerard Cukier. Charlotte is a highly regarded and well known media law specialist; favoured by her clients for her watchful, protective and speedy approach in a crisis. She is well known to the media where she has established a strong network. Gerard Cukier has over 30 years’ experience working with very high profile entertainers, protecting their best interests in good times and bad.
The reputation and media team is available at all times and on an emergency basis. The team will advise on how to deal with a wide range of matters. Whether it is the first approach from a reporter, a photograph that has been taken without your consent, a threat to reveal your private information, a defamatory statement that either has been made against you or that you or your business is accused of making, issues of confidential personal or business information, or simply that you wish to put protective measures in place, we are here to help you.
Sometimes our clients also require the help of our criminal, family and employment teams. We work closely with our colleagues across the firm to deliver a seamless service across these practice areas even when the problems are wide ranging during this often turbulent time.
"Kingsley Napley LLP’s ‘extremely good and highly professional’ reputation management team frequently supports its criminal and regulatory practice in cases involving high-profile individuals."
