The best reputation managers for high-net-worth individuals

This year’s index arrives at a strange time in the world of reputation. In our briefing section, published alongside our rankings, we examine some of the key themes on the minds of practitioners and clients.

After the eye-watering Johnny Depp libel case last year, we take an in-depth look at the state of defamation with the help of some Top Ten lawyers – and look at some of the other times defamation went wrong. We ask what the age of cancel culture means for reputation managers and meet a studio tailoring reputation management to generation Instagram. We also talk to Andy Coulson about his unique insight into reputation management and ask the experts about what to do when blackmailed.

Spear’s rankings are drawn up on the basis of peer nominations, telephone and face-to-face interviews, data supplied by firms, as well as information gathered by the Spear’s editorial and research teams.
