Thank God I was led to Clare Locke LLP. They obtained a complete retraction of a defamatory article published in the International Business Times attacking the integrity of my analysis of satellite images in the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. With the false articles removed from the internet, the credibility of my work on this important project remains intact.


Michael Hoebel

Malaysian Airlines Search Volunteer

I can give my strongest and unqualified endorsement of Tom Clare and Libby Locke and their legal firm specializing in media and press and reputational issues. In 40 years in public life, I have never encountered anyone whose professionalism and integrity I respected more greatly.

At my urging, Clare Locke has been an essential member of crisis management teams for large corporations and high-profile individuals alike, and serve as my own counsel on media and defamation matters.
