Australian law firm settles defamation lawsuit over Chrisley Legal

Australian law firms Chrisley and Slater & Gordon have agreed to pay a $1 million settlement to a former client of a former partner.

Chrisley & Slater &Guild, which represented clients such as actor Christopher Walken and former Labor Party leader Tony Abbott, also paid $500,000 to a man who sued the law firms in 2013.

The $1.4 million settlement is for a former Mr. and Mrs. Christopher Walkens defamation lawsuit against Mr. Slater &Gordon, according to a statement from the law firm.

Slater &Goy, which also represented clients including the Prime Minister, former Labor leader Mark Latham and former NSW Premier Mike Baird, was not involved in the settlement.

“It is an important settlement for all parties involved,” Mr. Walken’s lawyer, Robert Bays, said in a statement.

Lawyers for Mr. Walker said they hoped the $1,500 payout was a “breath of fresh air” to the legal profession.

“It’s a very significant victory for Mr Walkens and it’s a recognition of the kind of work he did to bring this case to light and to build a case against the law and the practice that he believed he was wronged,” Mr Bays said.
