Reputation and Crisis Management
“Experienced in handling highly complex cases, including those involving notable personalities from the sports and entertainment worlds.”
BCL provides discreet, effective and expert advice to, organisations, public figures, directors, employees and high profile / high net worth individuals in the business, industry, sports, entertainment and media sectors.
Our clients come to us because of our reputation, expertise and impressive track record of success, and because they want the best possible advice and representation. In particular, we are renowned for our discretion, as well as our expertise in safeguarding our client’s reputation and avoiding unwanted media interest.
We respond rapidly and effectively to protect the reputation of our clients when they are affected by a criminal or regulatory investigation/prosecution. Our lawyers are proactive from the outset and highly experienced in managing the media, controlling the release of information into the public domain and ensuring minimum disruption to our client’s life and reputation.
There have been many recent examples where private information has been leaked to the press and subsequently published across the media, often with negative headlines. In this type of situation, for both individual and corporate clients, our experienced lawyers proactively seek to minimise negative publicity, for example by providing detailed responses to press enquiries to correct misleading reporting, and more generally taking steps to limit our client’s exposure to any adverse media attention.
In addition, where necessary or desirable, we work closely with PR firms and other professional advisers to protect the reputation and privacy of our clients, which may include instituting legal proceedings against the media or the investigating authority.
