Revenge Porn & Sexting

When people are in a close and trusting relationship, they may share intimate images of each other by various messaging apps, or by email. If that relationship breaks down, and one party feels wronged by the other, it is possible that those intimate images could be shared inappropriately. We have dealt with cases where personal photographs have been sent to employers, family members, or published on the internet to a very wide audience. The hurt and harm that can be caused by these cases is immeasurable and they require a sensitive as well as a professional approach from the outset. If you have been the victim of revenge porn, you may be able to bring claims for damages for breach of your privacy or for breach of your copyright. We will be able to advise you what is most appropriate in your case. You may feel anxious and embarrassed about contacting a solicitor about these issues, but we have dealt with this type of case for many years, and have the expertise to  be able to help you at this very difficult time.
