Top Recommended Reputation Lawyers
After training at a City firm and working in commercial litigation, Mike Brookes joined Lee & Thompson 20 years ago. He leads its reputation protection team and acts for HNWs and celebrities from music, film, TV, theatre and sport.
A highlight of 2017 was acting for a Moroccan prince against an online publisher and successfully establishing, in the Court of Appeal, that both a Data Protection Act claim and a libel claim can be brought at the same time.
‘It’s real, you can relate to it,’ Brookes says of his work. But he adds that ‘a lot of what we do never sees the newspapers. If we do our job right, and the client comes to us at the right time, then there is no story.’
