Hannah Pilkington


  • I trained at BLM, qualifying as a solicitor in 2007 and focusing on reputational matters including defamation, breach of confidence  and data protection in a healthcare context, remaining at the firm until 2012.
  • I left BLM to practise in Hong Kong, and qualified as a solicitor in Hong Kong in 2014. I returned to BLM in June 2018, joining the TMT team.
  • Within the TMT team I act for and defend local authorities, publishers, members clubs, data processing companies, law firms and police forces, advising on libel and slander, data protection, malicious falsehood, breach of confidence and misuse of private information matters including both pre-action and litigated claims.
  • I have also acted for a range of medical professionals (doctors, dentists, nurses and alternative health practitioners) in matters affecting their professional reputations including pursuit of claims for defamation, defence of breach of confidence claims and removal of defamatory online postings and reviews.
  • I have represented clients to trial, in settlement meetings and in mediation including in high value claims.
