NI: Belfast lawyer wins newspaper apology for Harrison Ford

Paul Tweed

The Sunday Post, a Scottish newspaper, has been forced to issue a retraction after Belfast solicitor Paul Tweed threatened legal proceedings on behalf of Harrison Ford.

The most recent edition of the paper included an apology for having “inadvertently recited” groundless claims about the actor.

Mr Tweed, the senior partner at Johnsons Solicitors, has a history of representing Hollywood A-listers, including Johnny Depp, Amber Heard, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis.

The prominent solicitor was recognised in Chambers and Partners 2015 for his “unrivalled client base” and “unparalleled track record of success” in the defamation and privacy market.

In a statement, Mr Tweed said: “Harrison Ford acknowledges the categoric retraction and apology in the Sunday Post this weekend in relation to totally unfounded allegations regarding him and the filming of the motion picture American Graffiti, published by the newspaper.

“He is satisfied that the record has now been set straight.”

Johnsons has offices in Belfast, Dublin and London.
