Reputation Management Disputes

As business gurus like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett tell us, neglect your reputation at your peril.

We have unrivalled expertise in reputation management, working with the country’s top PR agencies. We act rapidly either to halt publications/broadcasts that inflict damage on your brand or the reputations of your lead individuals, or at least ensure that what does emerge in the media causes you less commercial damage. We do this using our knowledge of how the media works based on our extensive experience of acting for major media clients, and by deploying regulatory and legal tools to prevent the media disseminating false material about you to the detriment of your business.

If a publication or broadcast does take place which wrongly attacks your business/brand then we deploy legal/regulatory protections to repair the damage to your brand, again working with top PR experts which we can retain for you if necessary.
