This new and ever evolving area of Law presents fresh challenges to both individuals and business on a daily basis. Our expertise in this area allows us to provide strong reliable advice to our clients on demand.
With the advent of Twitter, facebook and other social media sites, a whole new raft of issues and problems now arise for individuals. We advise in relation to all internet issues which affect individuals. These can include circumstances where incorrect or defamatory information is written onto a site. This also extends to the use of incorrect or malicious photos.

Business is changing. Online activity is now at the forefront of business and it creates new possibilities for working relationships and doing business in ways that were simply not possible before. We advise and assist individuals, companies and other organisations on the issues and risks involved in setting up and managing online businesses.

Due to the nature of the online experience, we also understand that where a legal issue is raised, it must be dealt with without delay.
