Nothing gives us more pleasure than experiencing the moment where a client we look after receives his or her long awaited apology from their online harasser or internet troll, often together with a sum of money in damages and a long term injunction. Our solicitors and the entire support staff are absolutely passionate about pursuing online harassers and internet trolls all the way to the courts, both the civil and the criminal courts. If you are unsure whether you are being harassed online, please call us right now.

Our lawyers are highly experienced in handling online harassment mattes and will be very helpful and understanding, and this is a promise. There are some reported case studies on this website where our lawyers brought to a successful end to long term online harassment campaigns against our clients but the vast majority of the cases we handle are never reported because upon our clients' request we are able to anonymise them completely within any legal proceedings.

Examples of reported cases of online harassment that our lawyers have handled can be found here: Law Society Gazette and Evening Standard. Of you suffer from harassment online, and want to benefit from professional legal advice, call us now on 0207 183 4123.

Harassment injunctions against anonymous internet users

  • See how we served for the first time ever an harassment injunction against anonymous online user via the social media Instagram 

    The Claimant in the case used the picture-sharing social media service Instagram for his PR business and for social networking. At one point the Claimant started to receive dozens harassing messages via his Instagram account. The Defendant, was, or were anonymous uses who created a number of Instagram accounts which they used to harass their victim. They posted posts and images which were particularly vile and highly offensive. They included personal attacks on the victim with a racial and sexual element hard-core sexual images and pictures of beheaded men. The campaign encompassed distressing references to the victim’s family home and parents and it included threats to exacerbate the nature and scale of his campaign of harassment and/ or disclose private

  • "I would like to express my gratitude for the service provided to me by Cohen Davis Solicitors. My initial consultation with Mr Cohen provided me with an essential and professional legal perspective with regards to malcious communications that I was receiving via social media platforms. From the point of me engaging the services of Cohen Davis I was allocated a named solicitor (Anna B) who worked directly on my case over a number of months until a resolution was reached. Her dedication to my case and professional advice was invaluable, particularly at times when it felt emotionally tough. I am so glad that I found this company of solicitors and would highly recommend them if you need help with stopping online harssment and malicious communications."

  • Cohen Davis solicitors welcome clients who wish us to take on their harassment cases on a no win no fee basis. Because of the high number of cases where volnurable victims experience harassment on the internet yet the limited number of solicitors who are true specialists in handling online harassment cases, we have developed a criteria to enable those who wish us to represent them on harassment cases on a no win no fee basis, to try and determine in advance whether their case is likely to be eligible for a no win no fee representation.

  • In our younger days, some of us did things we later came to regret. We wronged people or made them upset. Guilty as charged. We can't turn back the wheels of time, however and usually we mature and move on to better and greater things.

    But what if, out of the blue, an indiscretion from 10, 20, or 30 years ago suddenly resurfaces, wreaking havoc on our family life, our business, our achievements, our good name? It resurfaces because someone causes it to, in order to destroy everything we have worked for.

  • What is the limitation period for online harassment cases?

    Although there are strict time limits set by law when it comes to issuing court proceedings under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, where the claim must be filed within 6 years of the harassing act, an important consideration for anyone who is being harassed, particularly online, is to act expeditiously and without delay. Usually, in order to be able to obtain an injunction for harassment you will need to convince the court that the harassment is recent. Another point, more specific to online harassment and limitation is that harassment on a website is arguably occurring each day all over again regardless of when it was posted first because each day the harassing website is published represents a new harassment event to the victim causing the victim alarm or distress. The limitation period in harassment cases requires detailed

  • The damage to reputation and well-being as result of posts or threats of posts on social media, particularly on Twitter and Instagram is often impossible to quantify. If you have suffered damage to your reputation as a result of being defamed on Twitter, it likely that we can help you seek redress through defamation laws.

  • Cohen Davis has won in the case of Phipps v Britton an apology and substantial damages from Paul Britton and his company Origin Design Ltd after they defamed, harassed and cyberbullied our client in a series of websites they created about him. This was a case where the victim felt he had been blackmailed on the internet to settle a debt. The apology took the form of a statement in open court read before His Honour Judge Moloney QC on Wednesday 20 May 2015.

    Discovering the identity of internet commentators who post abusive and defamatory content online and who use an anonymous identity to defame you or your business, is often a hugely challenging, if at times impossible task and one that continues to be a global problem for victims of such internet abuse. The police in any jurisdiction will typically be very limited in being able to assist in circumstances of anonymous internet abuse and from

  • “I instructed Cohen Davis on a very complicated matter of online harassment campaign against myself together with a large group of people. It involved hundreds of internet posts targeting large number of individuals. We needed an harassment injunction to stop the publication of private information about us on the internet
    I am a lawyer myself but deal with a different area of law altogether. One of the main reasons we decided to instruct a firm such as Cohen Davis is that they were the only law firm we found who has an efficient system that is designed to handle large scale online harassment campaigns.
    The firm was undeterred by the scale, any difficulties or challenges along their way and their client care was fantastic. You can contact them 24/7.

  • "When harassment occurs on social media we will obtain an injunction, anonymise our client and allow her to continue with uninterrupted use of her social media account."

    This can be particularly beneficial if you are a celebrity or if you depend on the social media account for work.

    Protection from Harassment and a privacy injunction obtained by Cohen Davis in favour of our client in the case of DDF v YYZ (unreported, 5 June 2015).

    In the case of DDF v YYZ, Cohen Davis obtained an injunction against an unknown Instagram user who harassed and cyberbully our client via the social media website Instagram. Our client, who we anonymised in the court order, was working in the entertainment industry and was relying on Instagram for his work as well as for personal communications.

  • Online harassment can occur even if the information published is true

     This is another ground-breaking internet law case by Cohen Davis solicitors. Lawyer Yair Cohen instructed by a former senior employee at the United Nations to put an end to harassment on the internet by another UN employee.

    Protection from Harassment interim injunction obtained by Cohen Davis in favour of former senior UN employee  RADA-ORTIZ and ESPINOSA VADILLO [2015] EWHC 2175 (QB).

    Meet Jesus Espinosa Vadillo, a former United Nations' (“UN”) temporary employee. In 2014 JEV, who worked as an interpreter at the UN's International Maritime Organisation (“IMO”), felt aggrieved about the way he believed he was being treated by his department manager.

  • Being a sex worker does not mean you can't have a private life, says judge as Cohen Davis obtains a privacy injunction for its escort client.

    In yet another ground breaking case, Cohen Davis’ team has obtained one of our most important judgements this year, whilst securing a privacy injunction for one of our clients, a London Escort.

    This case, involved a sex worker who had both false and private information posted about her on the internet. She became the subject of a campaign of harassment, which included the tagging of dozens of pornographic videos with her name. The harassing posts also included references to her sexuality, to her sexual preferences as well as false claims that she was having unprotected sex.

    This followed by further false allegations that she was an HIV/Aids positive. Cohen Davis brought

  • Victims of online harassment, intimidation, and defamation often feel hopeless and powerless to act. In many instances they feel scared and paralysed.

    If you have been a victim of an online reputation attack and have tried to report your attackers to the police, you were probably shocked and disappointed to learn that your local police force either was not interested, didn’t understand the problem, or is underfunded and unable to invest time and resources in investigating your case.

  •  I have been defamed on the internet. What can I do about this?

    The ability to list web pages on the top page of the search results for a long period of time is normally a function of either excellent workmanship or an unintended  random consequence of Google algorithm. Names of individuals and companies are easy targets for the purpose of internet defamation or even just to cause someone reputational, emotional or financial damage.
