Graham has over 25 years’ experience in all aspects of libel, reputation management, privacy, IP and matrimonial law. In that time he has worked on some of the most interesting and high profile cases, principally suing newspapers and broadcasters for libel or breaches of privacy, or seeking to prevent them publishing such information for his corporate and individual clients.
His achievements on behalf of his clients have resulted in him being recognised for many years as one of the country’s leading individuals in defamation and reputation management. Sometimes acting on a No Win, No Fee basis, Graham and his team have had an enviable track record of success. His aim, and that of the firm generally, is to achieve the best possible results as quickly as possible and at the most reasonable rate. He has for many years acted for powerful and influential individuals, including Tony and Cherie Blair, President Petro Poroshenko, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the Chairman of the Bar Council, Princess Charlene of Monaco, Nica Burns, Sir Norman Rosenthal, Sir Lynton Crosby, Donald Trump, Michael Jackson, Kate Beckinsale, Simon Cowell, Janet Jackson, Zac Goldsmith, Nigella Lawson, Josh Hartnett, Sean Bean, and Anna Richardson, for whom he sued Arnold Schwarzenegger for libel when he was Governor of California. There are many other clients whose details must remain confidential.
Graham also undertakes matrimonial work for his clients, and is often instructed to keep personal and private information in relation to these matters out of the media. He has been involved in some very substantial cases, involving families with matrimonial assets of well over £100m.
Independently-researched guides have said that Graham provides “down to earth, reliable and imaginative advice”, is “extremely savvy” and “an innovative lawyer with an impeccable record” he is renowned for his “unfailing ability to produce positive results.”
