Ian Helme joins Matrix Chambers


Matrix is delighted to announce that Ian Helme has joined us as a member from One Brick Court, with effect from 1 October 2018.

Ian is a leading junior specialising in all aspects of information, data and media law. Widely recognised for his regular involvement in cutting-edge and complex litigation, Ian has been at the forefront of many recent developments in the law of data privacy and defamation. He acted in the first UK ‘right to be forgotten’ case against Google and in the first trial of the new public interest defence under the Defamation Act 2013.

Ian is highly regarded in the legal directories and is described by Chambers and Partners 2018 as “A much in-demand junior who punches well above his weight, and is both a gifted academic and a talented practitioner.” “He’s an excellent junior who is extremely good on his feet.”

Rachel Holmes, Chief Executive of Matrix commented “We are delighted to welcome Ian to our growing Media and Information Team and we look forward to working with him.”
