Advice Before Publication

We advise prominent individuals, corporate bodies and those who find themselves about to be plunged into the media spotlight how best to deal with unwanted adverse press scrutiny.

"Excellent team with high quality and experienced reputation management litigators." The Legal 500 UK 2022

When our clients or their representatives receive an initial approach from a journalist or a threat to publish information, we respond quickly, decisively and with integrity. We use legal and practical tools to ensure our clients’ reputations, privacy and confidences are respected. We go the extra mile to support our clients.

The team has some of the most experienced lawyers in this area. We know how the media works and we know the editors and lawyers of the mainstream print and broadcast media. The team has successfully sought injunctions in appropriate circumstances to stop publication of information, particularly where clients are being blackmailed or harassed.

We work directly with clients and collaboratively with their existing legal, communications and security teams to provide a joined up and effective strategy to help control the situation. We are able to rely on the expertise of lawyers practising in other areas which can be invaluable where the issues are technical, interrelated with other legal issues or when decisions need to be taken under severe time pressure.

We are available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week on the following mobile numbers: Dominic Crossley (07769908959), Hanna Basha (07789963968) and Andrew Willan (07771932922).

"The team is always available, always thinking, and offers a high degree of empathy with clients." Chambers UK 2022
