How to identify anonymous trolls 

Internet trolling legal advice was not available in the UK until around 2012 where Yair Cohen had decided to take on the first case of internet trolling in the UK straight to the High Court in London.

How do you track down anonymous internet trolls

You track down anonymous internet trolls by using a variety of methods. The first successful case of tracking down internet trolls in the UK was that of a woman by the name of Nicola Brookes who had been trolled online after she made unpopular comments on a message board of a TV reality show.

Before the case was ready to proceed before the High Court court, the then young solicitor, Yair Cohen had browsed through thousands of pages of evidence that helped him build up a profile of the potential internet trolls.

During the High Court case, Facebook was ordered, for the first time in the UK, to disclose the identities of all the Facebook individuals who used the Facebook platform to abuse Ms Brookes. This resulted in more investigation work and eventually in one arrest by the police. Since this case, tracking down internet trolls has become one of the specialists, and most favourable areas of practice for solicitor Yair Cohen and for his law firm.
