Reply Link Whoops 7 July 2011 at 16:49 Looks like Olswang just lost a client – on BBC today, (7 July) NoW is to be closed down. Must be one of the shortest client relationships in history.

Reply Link well, not really 7 July 2011 at 17:16 Well, no. The fact that News International will not release any further editions of NOTW does not mean that the claims, or the work, or even the company will go away…. Reply Link Danno 7 July 2011 at 19:06 Even mass murderers need defending: so too News International. It’s ridiculous to criticise Olswang for dealing with them.
