In a world where use of social media has become part of everyday life, and our private lives are often lived out on Facebook and on the internet, does the right to privacy really still exist?
In the event of a relationship breakdown, in our experience your private life becomes less private and social media can be used to attack an individual’s character no matter how private you try to make your use of the internet. You do have the right to privacy and this area of the law is developing rapidly.
We are also seeing an increase in the misuse of social media from ex-partners and even their new partners. At BTO we have BTO’s reputational management team who are on your side and work closely with BTO’s family law team to take action against anyone engaged in this sort of activity, which may even be criminal in nature.
Privacy, Confidentiality and Reputation Management
If you are in the public eye and sometimes even if you are not, you could end up with unwelcome media attention. Managing the media is a specialised art and here at BTO we have significant experience.
We have a media/reputation management team who have contacts with both print and broadcasting media.
We can offer immediate support and guidance, can work with PR agencies on your behalf and will seek press bans where appropriate.
Here are some of the other areas that we deal with:
