We have a first class record of removing abusive material from the internet on behalf of our clients. We have acted in a range of matters that have had the potential to become extremely damaging and have in the majority of cases, been able to remove the damaging material swiftly and cost-effectively.


Recent examples of our work removing abusive websites and abusive online material includes:

  • Advising an independent school in London on defamatory material posted on the internet by an ex-employee. The material was quickly removed from the internet.
  • Advising a restaurant owner on defamatory web forum postings. Again, the material was quickly removed from the internet.
  • Advising a number of leading independent schools on defamatory material posted in internet chat rooms by pupils, and having the material removed from the internet.
  • Acting for an independent school in swiftly removing an abusive website from the internet and obtaining a transfer of the domain name to our client.
