Farrer & Co is facing court action in France over its role acting for News Group Newspapers (NGN) in its 2008 battle with former FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) president Max Mosley.
Two members of the firm’s media group, partner Ben Beabey and consultant and ex-senior partner Robert Clinton, are understood to have appeared before a judge in France earlier this month, with the firm still waiting to hear whether further action will be taken.
Dispute group partner Adrian Parkhouse, who is handling the case for Farrers, said: “The firm is a party under investigation in respect of an alleged breach of French privacy law arising from our sending a copy of published News of the World articles to the president of the senate of the FIA.”
In separate cases relating to 2008’s Mosley litigation, NGN has been indicted for violation of privacy and defamation, while News of the World journalist Neville Thurlbeck has been indicted for defamation.
