As a litigation lawyer to insurers such as AXA and blue-chips such as Tesco, Tweed has been on high-profile media cases in the UK and Ireland for 30 years. His first major defamation case came in 1986 after two prominent senior counsels were accused of fighting over the last chocolate éclair in a local cake shop; a two-week libel action against the Irish Sunday World resulted in £50,000 awards to both plaintiffs. The success led to him acting for Liam Neeson and other actor A-listers, including Harrison Ford, Vanessa Redgrave, Nicolas Cage, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez. The likeable solicitor acts for others in public life: journalists, politicians and entrepreneurs, newspapers and other publishers.
