High profile businessmen and women, global families, sports stars, entertainers and other public figures are just some of the individuals who need support following any unwanted publicity.
Following the recent health crisis, these individuals have been put in the spotlight for the way they are responding to the global pandemic and, for those wealthy individuals, whether they are doing enough to support not only employees but the communities around them.
These situations require rapid reaction negotiation and action, most commonly against the press and the proliferating range of social media, often at short notice and out of hours. The global nature of mainstream media can lead to the need for coordinating international advice.
What are my options for restoring my and my family’s reputation?
We are ready to respond on your behalf and coordinate urgent legal advice such as “superinjunctions” for intrusions into privacy or breaches of confidentiality. We can then look at copyright and contractual disputes, without the need for expensive and often counter-productive litigation. If appropriate we can work in conjunction with the Independent Press Standards Organisation or Ofcom.
