Top Ten Reputation Lawyers
It had been a long time coming, but there were real cheers of approval when Nigel Tait went up to the stage to collect his Spear’s Reputation Lawyer of the Year award at the Dorchester in November.
Since that evening, the rumour has reached Spear’s that he’s not unhappy about the win: ‘Ask him about it and his face lights up,’ says one industry insider. Perhaps that’s because it was well-deserved.
Carter-Ruck’s managing partner has been doing high-end work, winning six-figure payouts for celebrities, acting for corporate giants and obtaining important injunctions. Most famously he obtained the claimant’s injunction in PJS v News Group Newspapers, which went to the Supreme Court, which upheld the injunction.
Tait also recently acted for Google in a well-publicised Right to Be Forgotten case.
Tait tells Spear’s: ‘We are quickly able to understand nuanced geopolitical situations and how they impact on our clients’ interests. Our expertise in dealing with the international media means that we are uniquely placed among law firms to advise on the reputational implications of sensitive international disputes.’
It’s no surprise that the clients keep coming for Tait.
