This is the Spear’s ranking of the best reputation lawyers for high-net-worth individuals. The list features our Top Ten, Top Recommended and Recommended reputation and privacy lawyers
For high-net-worth individuals (HNWs), reputation and privacy are valuable assets. When they are placed under threat — whether by the press, individuals on social media or other actors — the right lawyer can be indispensable.
A reputation lawyer can assist with matters of defamation, privacy, data protection and a number of other legal issues that can cause damage to an individual’s reputation, advising on the best strategy and course of action.
In the table below, we present our Top Ten, Top Recommended and Recommended reputation and privacy lawyers, along with their specialisms and notable clients. The list is London-centric, but includes practitioners who operate in jurisdictions all around the world.
The Spear’s rankings are drawn up on the basis of peer nominations, telephone and face-to-face interviews, data supplied by law firms, as well as information gathered by the Spear’s editorial and research teams.
For readers of Spear’s, the 2022 edition of the rankings will look familiar. The composition of the Top Ten is similar to last year, but there is one new entrant in the form of Jo Sanders of Withers. She boasts an impressive client-base, which includes leading entrepreneurs from around the world and high-profile figures from the entertainment industry and politics.
The Recommended section is bolstered by the introduction of Leo Dawkins of Lee & Thompson. Dawkins has worked on a broad range of cases, spanning television, the video games industry and data protection. He represented Prince Moulay Hicham of Morocco in the Court of Appeal in a libel and Data Protection Act claim against an online publisher.
