Reducing reputational impact from a former executive

The challenge:  a large PLC was facing a set of harmful allegations against a former executive with a short deadline given by the media

What we did: the client wished to avoid drawing attention to itself in the issue, so we engaged third party counsel for the executive and armed them with arguments based on privacy and defamation law to deter the story.

The result: Managing the process of engagements between the law firm and media over the day, we were able to prevent the story appearing without our client breaking cover.

Location: London
