On 2nd May the High Court was informed that the next tranche of phone hacking claims in this ongoing litigation has now commenced. It is expected that there will be at least 90 claimants in this next wave against the News Group Newspapers. Hamlins has already issued 13 claims and has many more in the pipeline.
Commenting on the settlement of his phone hacking claim high profile sports agent Simon Bayliff said:
“Hamlins did an excellent job in fighting both my cases and I am absolutely delighted with the results. I would highly recommend them to anyone who believes they may be a victim of phone hacking. I was extremely shocked to learn I was a victim of phone-hacking but it is now clear the newspapers targeted me because of my job and close relationship with the sports players I represented.”
