Our reputation counsel is relied upon to bring a measured external view to special situations which require a deep understanding of the partnership structures and the broader business and social environment law firms operate in.
Our knowledge and experience means we can quickly assess the situation and offer pragmatic advice across the full range of crisis situations and communications channels – crucial in any crisis event. We have advised some of the world’s leading law firms on major redundancy programmes, office closures, team moves, failed mergers, #MeToo, employment tribunals, international terrorism incidents, criminal investigations, cyber attacks, data breaches and professional negligence claims. We are particularly well known for our expertise in representing law firms and individuals facing SRA investigations.
