On 4 June 2015, Mr. Justice Birss, sitting in the Chancery Division, dismissed with costs Motivate Publishing FZ LLC’s claim to be the exclusive licensed publisher of Hello! in the Middle East until 2020.

This followed proceedings that were issued in early March and ended in an expedited trial, during which Rupert Butler represented Hello Limited throughout as direct access counsel using his licence from the BSB to go on the record and ‘conduct litigation’.

The proceedings are reported here
