The idea that our defamation laws, and Leveson, would prevent investigative journalism has just not been borne out,’ says Gideon Benaim. ‘The reality is that it is alive and well.’ A tier-one solicitor to the likes of JK Rowling, Benaim has acted in some of the most interesting and influential cases of the last two decades: from Leveson and Naomi Campbell to Roman Polanski. Celebrities and multinationals regularly call on him for his skills in acting against the media and online publishers, on matters from defamation to privacy and contract law. ‘There’s a lot that’s done behind the scenes, both before and after publication, without the need to issue a formal claim for court,’ Benaim says.
