A specialist in privacy and defamation, Jenny Afia supports individuals and businesses in managing and preventing crises. A large part of her practice is devoted to helping individuals proactively reduce media intrusion, so they can control what’s public and what’s private.
She is also highly skilled in helping clients deal with paparazzi harassment, particularly when it involves their children.
In 2008, Afia won the Young Solicitor of the Year award at the British Legal Awards and has been ranked in the Chambers & Partners legal directory as a leader in her field ever since.
She says: ‘It’s easy to think once someone has achieved great success in their careers, whether in business or the arts, that media intrusion is just part of their day job. But seeing high-profile peoples’ worlds from within, I really understand how difficult constant intrusion into their private lives can be.
‘My role is to rationally fight their corner and help them and their families live private lives in the public eye.’
