Lawyer Paul Tweed, a senior partner in Johnsons Law Firm, has a star-studded list of clients and has represented Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Harrison Ford, among others.

The big oops occurred when the MailOnline, one of England’s largest news sites, wrongly charged Nicolas with tax evasion.

That allegation was contained in a story that centered on the actor returning rented DVDs late. The amount of monetary damages paid by the site was not revealed.
