Peter Girvan joins as Associate Tenant
We are thrilled to announce Peter Girvan has joined us as an Associate Tenant.
Called to the Bar in Northern Ireland, England & Wales and the Republic of Ireland, Peter specialises in all areas of media law including defamation, privacy, data protection and reporting restrictions, often representing public figures, celebrities and journalists in high profile civil proceedings. Peter is committed to representing vulnerable claimants and has acted regularly for children, members of minority groups and vulnerable adults to protect their privacy and data rights against social media giants and public authorities. He was the first advocate to successfully obtain an award of damage against Facebook in respect of content published on its social network.
Edward Fitzgerald QC says: ‘This is fantastic news. Peter is a massively scholarly and creative lawyer who has taken on the big social media giants and won on behalf of the ordinary person on numerous occasions. I’m sure he will be a great addition to our brilliant media team.’
