Top Recommended Reputation Lawyers
There is a need for dynamism and speed in the crisis landscape, says Emma Woollcott, the soon-to-be-head of Mishcon’s reputation protection group. ‘We have to be chameleons and put ourselves in such a range of situations and understand it very quickly,’ she says.
Speed does not equate to haste, though: ‘You need to have the gravitas and confidence to pause and reflect on the key priorities. Panic just breeds danger, and experience teaches us that we should take more time when making decisions.’
Woollcott works on all aspects of privacy, media and reputation law for a wide range of HNWs. Her battles often cross borders. No wonder a peer once proclaimed: ‘Clients can’t be in safer hands.’
