Kingsley Napley partner Stephen Parkinson has been instructed by former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks following her arrest in the wake of the phone-hacking scandal.
Brooks resigned from her post as chief executive of News International, which owned defunct tabloid News of the World (NoW), on Friday 15 July. She was arrested by appointment on Sunday 17 July on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications and on suspicion of corruption.
The charges relate to the practice of phone hacking at NoW that occurred while Brooks was editor of the paper.
Parkinson, who is head of the criminal litigation team at Kingsley Napley, has a history of working with high-profile clients. He advised then Prime Minister Tony Blair and all the Cabinet office witnesses in the Hutton Inquiry, as well as acting for a key witness in the Iraq Inquiry and Sir Ian Blair and other officers in the investigation into the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes.
