Top Recommended Reputation Lawyers

A partner at Charles Russell Speechlys since 2001, Duncan Lamont typically acts for high-profile sportspeople, business figures, politicians and HNWs, as well as broadcasters.

Lamont has been heavily involved in phone-hacking litigation, advising Coronation Street stars and other actors. ‘It’s usually about ensuring that private information remains out of the media,’ he says. ‘I also work to protect online reputations: if we say [to the newspapers] “we’ll sue you” we will, but more often than not we reach a compromise.

‘The news outlets don’t want to get sued over what’s often a trivial matter,’ he adds. ‘They don’t have the budget any more.’
