  • If only this media furore would spread to South Africa where highly unethical methods are used by TV "journalists" to wrongly discredit hospitals, children's homes, medical charities and more.

  • Not a very bright move by Olswang, this will ultimately cost them far more than they receive in fees from News Corp.

  • Looks like Olswang just lost a client - on BBC today, (7 July) NoW is to be closed down.
    Must be one of the shortest client relationships in history.

  • @ Whoops | 7-Jul-2011 4:49 pm - It wont be forgotten that they were very happy to take their cash and defend the indefensible.

  • Well, no. The fact that News International will not release any further editions of NOTW does not mean that the claims, or the work, or even the company will go away....

  • Even mass murderers need defending: so too News International.

    It's ridiculous to criticise Olswang for dealing with them.

  • Oh to be a fly on the wall during the conflict checking process at Olswang. Having lived and worked in several Common Law jurisdictions it is, sadly, very reminiscent of New Zealand. HTW and The Grauniad - how quaint...
