Pre-publication checks

Unsure about that story or photo? I can give you fast, simple legal advice, seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

I’m available when you can’t get hold of a solicitor. And quicker and cheaper when you can.

I will deal with your query within 30 minutes. I will explain what’s safe with under the law and the Ipso code.

I can also re-write copy, draft letters to complainants and guide you through the photo maze.

You can either pay by the call, or take out a retainer. Get a quote now
