Description

In this engrossing memoir, internationally-renowned libel lawyer Paul Tweed lays bare the reality of defending the world’s biggest names in the court of law. During his four-decade career, Tweed has successfully represented scores of A-list celebrities and members of the British Royal Family, with many media giants being forced to withdraw stories, issue apologies or make substantial payouts when faced with his prowess.

From fighting for the beleaguered Britney Spears against ruthless tabloids, to advising Prince Andrew against his Newsnight solo run car-crash in 2019, Paul Tweed has seen it all. Here, he thrusts the reader into the centre of the most incendiary celebrity defamation lawsuits of his illustrious career. He exposes how these cases evolved, becoming lucrative headline fodder for bloodthirsty media conglomerates, in turn sustained by the endless churning of social media companies, working hand in glove to make it difficult for people to seek redress when they have been defamed.

From Holywood to Hollywood is a riveting glimpse behind the scenes of a high-octane career navigating huge egos and high stakes to protect the reputations of the most visible but intensely secretive stars on earth.
