Operation Golding, Mirror Group phone hacking claims now underway

Operation Golding, the MPS investigation into Dan Evans’ phone-hacking activities at Mirror Group Newspapers, will be heard at Trial in February 2015. Mirror Group Newspapers publishes the Daily Mirror, the Sunday Mirror and the People.

Hamlins team of phonehacking lawyers are about to issue claims for compensation on several cases that concern the Mirror.

Operation Golding overlaps with Operation Pinetree – the latter of which concerns Dan Evans’ phone-hacking activities at the News of the World features department – because Dan Evans moved from the Mirror Group to the News of the World. Phone-hacking victims are now being notified under Operation Golding.

No win, no fee funding arrangements have been agreed in many claims already issued under Operation Pinetree and Operation Weeting. Our media team at Hamlins have used their expertise in privacy law to win damages and other remedies in 100% of the voicemail interception claims pursued by the firm.

Phone-hacking victims continue to be contacted by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) under Operation Golding and Operation Pinetree: if you are concerned that you may be a victim of phone hacking, please contact our team:
