    Anna is a Paralegal in our Media Disputes department.

    Having joined Hamlins in September 2021, Anna works on a variety of matters including defamation claims, privacy proceedings and the ongoing phone hacking litigation against News Group Newspapers and Mirror Group Newspapers.

    She has experience across various stages of the dispute resolution process, including conducting pre-action research, drafting letters of claim, analysing disclosure, drafting witness statements and helping prepare for settlement negotiations.

    Anna is currently assisting in bringing claims for misuse of private information against television broadcaster Channel 5 in relation to their intrusive ‘fly on the wall’ documentary programme Can’t Pay? We’ll Take it Away!

    Anna graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2019 with a BA in History, before achieving a Distinction in her Masters in Law & Legal Practice at BPP University in 2021.

    Recommendations

    ‘From our initial meeting to our final communications after receiving our long and hard-fought for damages, the entire team at Hamlins has been nothing less than exemplary. Every email has been answered promptly and efficiently, every phone call handled professionally. Meeting Alex and the team on numerous occasions has proved them to be empathetic, understanding, professional and driven to get the right and just result. We were anxious before our first meeting but Alex, Lauren, Meera and Anna were all extremely friendly, professional and understanding of the horrible experiences we had received from C5. Those feelings were swept aside in minutes. The level of respect and understanding we were treated with was first-rate. Having had bad service from solicitors in the past, we can honestly say that Hamlins are in a class of their own. We would recommend them without hesitation.’

    ‘I am so pleased Channel 5 has publicly apologised to us to today for the serious invasion of our privacy. The programme has caused us great distress and I feel that we can now start to put this behind us.  I would like to thank the fantastic Hamlins Media Disputes department – in particular Alex Cochrane, Lauren Twidale, Daniel Shaw, Meera Khunti and Anna Seal – for fighting our corner and obtaining justice on our behalf’.
