Athalie Matthews

Spear's Review

Former reporter Athalie Matthews brings her journalistic background and expertise to her role as counsel at Farrer & Co. Armed with a ‘first-hand understanding’ of the media industry, she protects clients from reputational issues that can arise when damaging information hits the headlines. 

The lawyer, who is fluent in French and Spanish, has acted for a prominent client base comprising MPs, Middle Eastern royalty, oligarchs and high-profile celebrities. She has also worked with publishers, bloggers and authors providing her advisory services to ensure that material set to be printed is neither litigious nor defamatory.   

Matthews’ areas of expertise include data protection, breach of confidence, blackmail, harassment, journalistic investigations and phone hacking.
