Holmes is a market leader in reputation, brand and crisis management. We have significant expertise and experience in advising on publication and publicity issues, including those arising in civil disputes, criminal proceedings and regulatory enquiries.
We are regularly engaged to manage the reputational aspects of business-critical crises for Ireland's leading companies. We actively manage our clients' public profiles and exposure, both pre and post-publication, and liaise with media and other outlets to protect against inaccurate and hostile coverage. Where necessary, we have considerable experience in issuing injunctive proceedings to prevent unlawful publication or disclosures and bringing claims for post-publication redress. We have specialist expertise in online reputation and privacy matters, acting for a range of clients in some of the most high-profile internet defamation cases in recent years. We frequently advise on internet service providers' obligations and potential liabilities under Irish law, compliance with local and global "notice and takedown" requests and the prosecution and defence of applications for Norwich Pharmacal Orders.
