Profile

Paul Tweed

Description

Liam Neeson, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, Nicolas Cage and Harrison Ford are just some of the names that Paul Tweed has represented in his illustrious career. The fast-talking Irishman’s practice is global in scope: Tweed practices in the jurisdictions of England & Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, and has represented clients from regions including the US, Middle East and Russia.

Tweed’s areas of expertise include media litigation, reputation management, privacy, data protection, cyber security and commercial litigation, and the lawyer regularly undertakes pre- and post-publication work. ‘Some law firms allow fees to run up…..my aim is to get the case resolved quickly,’ he says. The personable Ulsterman attributes his successes to graft and guile: ‘I was one of the first to realise that if something is published online, if you can get an apology then you can put it back down online and it’ll go around the world.’
