Michael Yates

Michael Yates, a specialist across a range of contentious matters, has a strongly international practice including influential Middle Eastern families.

Yates is skilled at obtaining injunctive relief, stopping stories and removing content through tact rather than aggression, and has obtained many apologies, damages, takedowns and corrections for high-profile HNWs.

A memorable case was the landmark privacy injunction ERY v Associated, which added weight to the premise that a criminal investigation of an individual can be considered to be private information – hence protectable.

Yates joined Taylor Wessing from media law firm Lee & Thompson.
