Profile

Michael Yates

Description

Michael Yates, a specialist across a range of contentious matters, has recently brought in an A-list client from an ‘influential’ Middle Eastern family.

Yates is skilled at obtaining injunctive relief, stopping stories and removing content through tact rather than aggression, and has obtained many apologies, damages, takedowns and corrections for high-profile HNWs.

A memorable case was the landmark privacy injunction ERY v Associated, which added weight to the premise that a criminal investigation of an individual can be considered to be private information – hence protectable.

Yates joined Taylor Wessing from media law firm Lee & Thompson.
