"A terrific range of counsel is available at this set, which in a little over 20 years has created a strong identity at the Bar." - Chambers & Partners 2012
Civil practice teams at Doughty Street Chambers have always recognised that our key strength lies in our multi-disciplinary approach to casework. With such diverse expertise our barristers are uniquely placed to address the cross-over issues often interwoven within our cases.
Administrative and public law is at the heart of Doughty Street Chambers with more than 50 barristers of all levels of call practicing in this area.
Doughty Street Chambers is one of the most international sets in the UK.
Sources admire its “genuine commitment to civil liberties” and its “incredibly long history of doing human rights work.”
Doughty Street's Media Law and Defamation Team offers experience in all aspects of media and defamation work at silk and junior level. This includes privacy/confidentiality, contempt, copyright, data protection, defamation, elections, freedom of assembly, harassment, internet publication, obscenity and blasphemy, protection of journalists' sources, regulation of the media, reporting restrictions, special procedure material and televising courts and inquiries. This expertise is complemented by team members' knowledge and expertise in other areas of human rights work including public law and criminal defence.
Team members have appeared at all levels of the justice system, with experience in this jurisdiction from tribunals to the Supreme Court. The team has extensive experience of applications to, and appearances before, the European Court of Human Rights.
Team members regularly give pre-publication advice to national and international newspapers and magazines, publishers and broadcasters; they have acted in media judicial review cases, including challenges to decisions of Ofcom, the Press Complaints Commission, the Advertising Standards Authority and the British Board of Film Classification. Members of the team are consulted by the Council of Europe, the European Commission of the EU and other international media bodies as experts on freedom of expression and, in that capacity, regularly lecture and advise on media law in Eastern Europe and elsewhere. The team participate in seminars on aspects of media law and provide “in-house” training.
