Phone hacking

In recent years Russells has been at the forefront of the phone hacking litigation acting for a range of individuals who have been targeted and often just because they happened to be associated with someone in the public eye.

Each client has in common the fact that that we have recovered substantial damages for him or her, they have received meaningful apologies, frequently with other remedies too.

We seek to ensure that every client understands to the fullest extent possible what has historically happened with their private information.

The nature of the intrusion by the newspaper organisations responsible often requires that we deal with client’s claims with sensitivity and respect but equally we fight hard to secure adequate compensation for those whose rights have been violated.

Although hacking litigation has been ongoing for several years now the number of claims show no sign of dwindling. If you believe your calls or voicemail messages may have been intercepted or if you are contacted by the police advising you may have been a victim please contact Steven Tregear who can advise you how best to deal with the situation.
