Our Media & Technology Department has been involved in many of the most high-profile defamation actions in both Irish jurisdictions and Great Britain over the past 25 years.

We have achieved record damages for Plaintiff clients while also representing a number of national newspapers and publishers.  Our clients include many well-known international personalities in the music, film, sport and entertainment worlds.

With the growing dominance of online publications and social media over traditional forms of media, such as print journalism, we have seen a significant increase in private individuals and businesses seeking to protect their reputations and instructing us to seek the removal of content from online platforms.

Given our decades of experience, our clients have benefited from our extensive knowledge of this area of the law.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Defamation/ Reputation management

  • Privacy/ the Right to be Forgotten

  • Intellectual Property

  • Norwich Pharmacal Orders

  • Breach of GDPR/ personal data claims

  • Pre-publication advice

  • Reporting restrictions

  • Injunctions

  • Social Media disputes (Facebook, Instagram, X, & TikTok, etc)

Johnsons has a proven track record, with the knowledge and experience to know that these claims require swift action. Our Media & Technology team is ready to give prompt and expert advice, and will guide you through each step of the process, while always being focused on your best interests and how best to protect them.
