Kingsley Napley hires high profile media litigator
Kingsley Napley has hired high profile media litigator Charlotte Harris away from Mishcon de Reya. Harris joins the disputes team in January and will spearhead the firm's new media and reputation management division. Harris has been with Mishcon since 2011. Her high profile experience includes the exposure of the phone hacking scandal and the Leveson inquiry as well as in High Court battles against News Group Newspapers. Additionally, she serves as a board member at Hacked Off, a lobby group that advocates for press regulation.
Another recent arrival to Kingsley is Jo Rickards, a former DLA Piper partner who represented former News of the World editor Andy Coulson in the phone hacking trial.
