‘Defamation is alive and well,’ says Mike Brookes, dispelling the gloom that plagued claimant lawyers after the Defamation Act’s technical threshold for ‘serious harm’ was raised in 2014. A respected litigator who came to reputation law through his early work with clients such as Robbie Williams, Brookes is lauded for his work in dispute resolution. He has acted for royalty, including his recent success in a libel and data protection appeal for Prince Moulay of Morocco. He secured an anti-harassment injunction for Harry Styles against paparazzi in 2014, and is one of the most prolific claimant lawyers in phone hacking claims against the Mirror, including record settlements of £600,000 for Charlotte Church.
