  • "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.

  • 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.

Our privacy lawyers took the legal proceedings against "persons unknown" as, despite extensive efforts, we

  • "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.
