Samuels Solicitors helps with Right to be Forgotten

To speak to an expert solicitor about making an application for the right to be forgotten, call 01271 343457 today. 

Samuels Solicitors is pleased to announce that we have assisted a client with a right to be forgotten application to Google, which has resulted in a damaging newspaper article being omitted from search results about him.

Our client is a practising dentist, who received a caution in 2008 for attempting to blame his recently deceased mother for a speeding ticket.

A story appeared in our client's local paper and online in 2010, and the online version of the story was updated in 2013, referring to our client's caution. A link to the article appeared in search results against our client's name, causing significant disruption to his personal and professional life. This was despite the fact that the General Dental Council had decided that no action should be taken against him. 

We were intructed to make an application to Google for the right to be forgotten, which we are delighted was sucessful. This means that when a search is carried out on Google of our client's name, the offending article will no longer appear in the results. 

There is no such thing as "tomorrow's chip paper" any more, and harmful information about individuals can remain online for many years, causing problems with employers, personal relationships and business interests. 

If you want to get rid of harmful internet results, then speak to us today. Alternatively you can complete our online form to provide us with all of the information we require to make the application for you. 

We will always carry out applications for the right to be forgotten for a low fixed fee, so there will be no nasty surprises. The whole process, from instructing us, to getting a response to the application, usually takes just a matter of days.
