Phone hacking claims
Phone hacking update:
The specialist lawyers in our phone hacking team have acted for a large number of clients regarding this issue. There are a number of means by which we can help to obtain evidence of phone hacking. In particular, for those who were of interest to the tabloid media between 2002 and 2006, their details may be within the papers that were seized by the Metropolitan Police from the private investigator and from News of the World at that time (Operation Weeting). Others are the subject of the phone hacking investigations known as Operation Pinetree, Operation Golding, Operation Elveden and Operation Tuleta (Click here for further information).
Information can be sought from the mobile phone providers. Those targeted may recall repeatedly receiving calls where the caller hangs up or calling their voicemail where the automated reply tells them that voicemail messages they have not listened to are described as being old messages. Other signs of phone hacking may be that the client receives notification of the security PIN being re-set or receiving a text message from mobile phone providers informing them that someone has attempted to do this.
How we can help you
