Since launching the department in October 2018, Head of Reputation & Privacy Alex McCready has established herself as to go-to adviser for HNW individuals.
She, alongside Senior Associate Rory Lynch, have built up a loyal client base who have come to them in crisis, as well as supporting on reputational and privacy concerns in all of the firm’s complex cases be it a high profile divorce, a large piece of civil litigation garnering media headlines, or a high profile client facing criminal charges.
