Reputation & Privacy

In todays digital world, your reputation and privacy are vulnerable to new nefarious forms of attack. At Vardags, we understand the emotional and commercial effects of these attacks. We have extensive experience defending our clients privacy and personal or professional reputation.

Our leading reputation and privacy team have a wealth of expertise and bring an innovative approach to solving legal issues. We specialise in complex, high-stakes, international cases for high net worth (HNW) and ultra-high net worth (UHNW) clients.  Our team is regularly called upon to assist high-profile companies and individuals, including politicians, royalty, celebrities, and business executives.

Head of Reputation and Privacy, Alex McCready, is widely respected for her leading expertise, having been described as the definitive reputation and privacy lawyer by Spears 500. Her reputation has attracted a strong base of high-profile international clients. Notable examples include:

  •  Advising a prominent Middle Eastern royal family facing harassment and defamation
  • Representing easyJet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, during his defamation claim against The Telegraph
  • Working for a global firm in the week leading up to the publication of the Pandora Papers to ensure fair, accurate, and balanced reporting

Alex has an impressive track record of securing withdrawals or amendments, with particular expertise in pre- and post-publication and broadcast issues in libel and privacy cases. She has defended clients against a broad spectrum of issues, including smear campaigns, blackmail, harassment, and defamatory allegations.

The team also collaborates with other departments when required. For our clients going through a high-profile divorce, the team will join forces with our Divorce team to provide an effective media strategy.

If you are facing threats to your reputation or privacy, having the right solicitor by your side can make all the difference. If you think you may need our help, dont delay – book your free consultation today.
