Defamation is a specialised field which has arisen several times in connection with my work in the arts, sport, media and entertainment industries, although it is not of course limited in that way.

It is an area of conflict which is very suitable for mediation, as parties can agree a joint statement to the Court and press which reflects their interests, and also their needs.

Charles Middleton-Smith is widely experienced in Defamation cases. Below are examples of some recent engagements in this area:

  • Libel case involving Premier League football club management and national newspaper
  • Case concerning allegations of defamation in newspaper article relating to composition of well-known film theme
  • Case concerning defamation following magazine publication of photographs of a celebrity
