The Guardian News and Media (GNM) group has ramped up its in-house legal team with the hire of barrister Korieh Duodu.
Duodu leaves David Price Solicitors and Advocates after seven years to join the media group which owns the The Guardian and The Observer newspapers.
GNM's latest hire has acted on a number of high-profile cases, including acting for former royal butler Paul Burrell against The Sun newspaper.
Duodu managed to secure a gagging order banning The Sun from disclosing information from witness statements he made to police during his prosecution for theft from Diana's estate.
Duodu, who has co-authored two legal textbooks on defamation, will join GNM as a specialist in defamation and privacy matters.
Nuala Cosgrove, Director of Editorial Legal Services, said: "We're delighted that Korieh has joined GNM. His extensive knowledge and experience of media law will be an asset to the editorial legal team."
