WHAT WE DO

We take harassment cases very seriously, helping hundreds to get justice every year.

It is important to remember that harassment is also a criminal offence and can lead to imprisonment and/or a fine. 

The act of harassment involves a person engaging in a course of conduct which amounts to the harassment of another. Harassing a person includes both alarming the person and/or causing the person distress. Section 1 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 prohibits the harassment of another.

If you believe you are the victim of harassment, contact us for specialist legal advice so that we can help identify the best way to deal with those responsible.

WHY CHOOSE IRWIN MITCHELL?

We have over 20 years’ experience in claims such as these, so you will be getting the very best advice from expert solicitors.

We can issue legal proceedings and apply for an injunctive relief, which will place a restraining order on the person responsible for pursuing ongoing conduct amounting to harassment. You may also be awarded damages by the court in such circumstances.

If you believe you are the victim of harassment, you should seek specialist legal advice as quickly as possible.
