“they are a solid team and well suited to act for high net worth clients who find themselves in troubling legal issues which have negative effects”

Chambers and Partners High Net Worth Guide, 2020

Individuals in the public eye or with a reputation to protect often need to be shielded from the media glare when trouble may be ahead. The same is true for businesses, particularly business owners especially when they may have been accused of wrongdoing.

If you have been accused of something, either in your professional or personal capacity, it is critical to assess the problems that will arise quickly and strategically. Our team of reputation lawyers can help.

If an arrest has taken place or being threatened to take place, the steps taken at the start of an allegation can dictate how well you are to defend it later, if it develops.

Our “razor sharp” (Chambers UK, a Client’s Guide to the Legal Profession) expertise and the established trust with our clients, peers and the media reassures all those who work with us, shows that we understand what needs to be done, and get it done.

Those caught up in allegations can find themselves bewildered by what follows as investigators or regulators seek to establish cause and to apportion blame.  The instinctive response for those involved is to respond fully, providing responses to all questions put, believing that such an approach will necessarily ensure a fair outcome. Sadly, our experience shows that this is not always the best strategy. The links below will provide further help relevant to your situation.
