A reputation management solicitor must be ‘measured, calm and pragmatic’, says James Heath of Atkins Thomson. Heath has worked in the field of media litigation for well over a decade, working as the lead solicitor in hacking litigation against the Mirror Group. He also acted for social worker Sylvia Henry in the Baby P libel action. ‘It makes you realise that the social worker simply can’t win, whether they take the child away or decide not to,’ he says. Stamina is another key trait needed. Heath says of another recent case: ‘It has been pointed out to me that the case took longer to sort out than the Second World War!’
