Hamlins Phone Hacking lawyers seek compensation for Operation Pinetree victims

Phone hacking victims seeking compensation and damages under Operation Pinetree are being represented by phone hacking lawyers at Hamlins under no win, no fee funding arrangements. Operation Pinetree concerns News of the World (“NOTW”) journalist Dan Evans and the features department.

Operation Pinetree affects thousands of victims, many of whom have yet to receive MPS notification. Privacy lawyers at Hamlins have already used their expertise in phone hacking cases to win damages for phone hacking victims who received MPS notification under Operation Weeting. No win, no fee funding arrangements have been agreed in many claims. We have a 100% track record of winning damages and other remedies for such victims.

Voicemail interception victims represented by Hamlins will have their claims heard at a Trial in October 2014. The Trial will address both Operations Pinetree and Weeting.

Operation Golding, investigating allegations of phone hacking at the Mirror Group Newspapers (including the Sunday Mirror and The People) is expected to reveal further voicemail interception victims.

Criminal prosecution trials continue. Andy Coulson, formerly of NOTW, has been linked to the phone hacking conspiracy and is expected to give evidence in the criminal trials.
