Areas of Practice

Media Law, Privacy and Defamation

Media law enjoys a significantly higher profile than it did even a few years ago. Indeed, members of Arnot Manderson Advocates have played leading roles in some of the most influential cases of recent years. Our stable provides access to specialist advice and representation in relation to matters of defamation, questions of privacy, interdict against publication and contempt of court. Newspapers, broadcasters and private individuals regularly instruct our highly skilled and well informed counsel to act on their behalf.
