Defamation, Media Law & Intellectual Property

Colquhoun Murphy Lawyers provides strategic legal advice in respect of intellectual property and media issues.

Our Consultant, Ric Lucas, has developed one of Australia’s leading defamation practices. He regularly advises and represents leading figures in politics, business and the media, including cases that have defined defamation law in Australia, such as the proceedings brought by Tony Abbott, Peter Costello and their wives against Random House and a verdict of $375,000 for a former Director of the Defence Intelligence Organisation. More recently, he successfully fought a libel case to the High Court, to establish that the Federal Court has jurisdiction in ACT civil law matters.
