About Us

We are part of Samuels Solicitors LLP, a niche reputation management practice which was founded in 1990. We have an excellent reputation for assisting clients with a wide variety of reputation management issues, including applications for the right to be forgotten, breach of privacy cases, libel and slander claims and appeals to the Information Commissioner’s Office.

We work for clients all over the UK, throughout Europe and beyond, assisting them in dealing with and removing unwanted material which has been published about them online. We have a particular specialism in preparing and submitting right to be forgotten applications to all of the main search engines, including Google, Bing and Yahoo, as well as submitting Information Commissioner’s Office appeals, when the search engines reject the initial applications.

Samuels Solicitors LLP has for many years held Lexcel accreditation, which is the mark for excellence in client care and legal practice, awarded by the Law Society. Rigorous audits are carried out on an annual basis to ensure that we maintain these high standards.

Right to be forgotten applications are overseen by Judith Thompson, a partner in Samuels Solicitors LLP. She is assisted by qualified solicitor Matthew Howe, trainee solicitor Donna Smith, and by paralegal Carlyn Gough. Everyone who deals with right to be forgotten applications is experienced in this field and has dealt with this type of case for many years.

We will deal with your case competently, quickly and of course confidentially. We understand that where your reputation is concerned, there might be sensitive matters we have to discuss with you, and our clients appreciate our calm, professional approach to all reputation management matters, and right to be forgotten applications in particular.

We are happy to arrange telephone or Zoom calls with you, or to deal with your matter by email only, if that is what you would prefer.
We understand that once you have taken the step of contacting a solicitor, you will want us to take action as quickly as possible. Once you have instructed us and provided us with the information we need, we are generally able to submit the application to the search engine within a few days.

In every case, your application for the right to be forgotten will be subject to a fixed fee, so you know what to expect and there are no nasty surprises later on. In some cases, the search engine will ask for more information or documents, and we will talk to you about any further fees which need to be incurred before any work is carried out.

If you want to get rid of unwanted material about you online, we are the firm to help. If you are a solicitor or legal practitioner who deals with right to be forgotten applications, or other reputation management matters, who is looking for a move to the beautiful Westcountry, contact us to see what positions are available.
