Profile submitted by Iain Wilson

Practice Areas

Iain is the managing partner of Brett Wilson LLP and a prominent media and communications solicitor, dealing with defamation, privacy, data protection and harassment law. He predominantly (but not exclusively) acts for claimants and has a wide and varied client base, including politicians, celebrities, HNWIs, corporates, local governments and professionals. He advises the Law Society and numerous law firms across the country on defamation and harassment matters. Iain heads up the firm’s media department, which is particularly well-known for its pioneering work in relation to online defamation, privacy and harassment. He acted for the claimants in two of the leading cases in this field: The Law Society & Ors v Kordowski [2011] EWHC 3185 (QB) (‘the Solicitors from Hell case’) and Tamiz v Google Inc [2013] EWCA Civ 68. Iain acts for victims of privacy and data breaches, both deliberate (including phone-hacking and revenge porn) and accidental/negligent, often securing large settlements.
