Andrew Caldecott QC

By Rasika Sittamparam

Called to the bar in 1975 and taking silk in 1994, Andrew Caldecott QC has represented clients in some of the most high-profile defamation law and privacy cases of recent decades. He has been instructed by a wide range of broadcasters, publishing houses, corporations, UK and foreign governments, as well as by celebrities and government ministers. Select highlights include representing the Guardian during the Leveson Inquiry and bringing about Naomi Campbell’s landmark privacy ruling in the House of Lords. Caldecott has acted in countless breach of confidence and data protection cases – including representing Google – as well as on matters relating to reporting restrictions, contempt of court and obscenity. He is particularly noted for his reputation in Supreme Court cases. Caldecott has been a tenant of One Brick Court, a media and information chambers, since 1976. But his skills are not limited to the law, as he is also a successfully published playwright and more recently, novelist – Rotherweird, published in May 2017, is the first of a fantasy trilogy. ‘Intricate and crisp, witty and solemn: a book with special and dangerous properties,’ noted Man Booker prizewinner Hilary Mantel.
