Since its foundation in 2018, Vardags’ Reputation & Privacy team has quickly established a name for itself in the reputation management field. Now, this success has been recognised by the Legal 500, who have ranked the team for the first time.
Inclusion by the Legal 500 rounds off an exciting year for the Reputation & Privacy team, who were also shortlisted for the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards ‘Reputation Management Law Firm of the Year’.
With a high calibre of cases and a widely-praised work ethic, the team has gone from strength to strength in the two years since its inception.
These qualities were highlighted by their peers, with one individual praising the team’s “wealth of knowledge” as well as the fact that they are “readily available, extremely helpful and provide realistic advice.”
Clients also praised the collaborative way in which the team works with other departments and external advisors alike. The team works closely with Vardags’ Family, Criminal and Civil Litigation teams, bringing together a range of specialisms and expertise that set it apart from competitors and deliver the best results for its clients.
The team relishes finding new ways to help clients, with one referee highlighting the team’s “in-depth understanding of developments within the law which not only allows them to respond effectively but also use new changes to seize opportunities in the case. These opportunities are often missed by more lethargic practitioners.”
On a more individual level, both Rory Lynch and Alex McCready were repeatedly singled out for specific praise, with one fellow practitioner commenting: “Both Alex McCready and Rory Lynch are a joy to work with. Their professional standing, know-how and experience in their field combined with their personalities make a big difference for us in dealing with them.”
’The team at Vardags has broad, specialist expertise across a range of disciplines including misuse of private information/breach of confidence, harassment, defamation and related issues. The key strengths include the team’s extensive experience of privacy/data protection litigation, and their ability to straddle intersections with other areas of practice such as matrimonial law and commercial law.’
’The Vardags team has a very professional yet approachable attitude towards both the clients and the partners firms like us. They think of the best possible outcome for the client, rather than prioritising their billable hours. Their advice is impartial.’
’Rory Lynch and Alex McCready are standout practitioners. They have a very approachable demeanour which allows the clients to discuss sensitive matters frankly, enabling a coherent strategy to be formed early. They both have an in-depth understanding of developments within the law which not only allows them to respond effectively but also use new changes to seize opportunities in the case. These opportunities are often missed by more lethargic practitioners.’
