Schillings launches global alliance to deal with 'weaponised' reputation issues

London law firm Schillings today unveiled a “strategic alliance” with rivals in the US and Australia as it moves to offer clients global access to reputation and privacy services.

City firm Schillings, known for advising some of the richest and most powerful people in the UK, is linking up with Clare Locke in America and Giles George in Australia.

Schillings said: “In a world in which reputation is being increasingly weaponised, this move comes as a coordinated response to the rise of complex and multifaceted reputational risks. Privacy threats, smear campaigns, and the spread of mis- and disinformation, demand ever-more sophisticated solutions.”

David Imison, Chief Executive of Schillings said: “When it comes to reputation, privacy and security, the stakes have never been higher. This new partnership will deliver an unrivalled set of global capabilities to our clients.”

The alliance is partly a response to what the firms called “polarised politics and media” which create “existential challenges” for clients.

Schillings launched a communications business in September 2023 to sit alongside its more traditional legal and security arms.

Tom Clare, co-founder of Clare Locke, said: “Effectively safeguarding the reputation of prominent individuals and businesses has never been more complex, nor more far reaching. Polarised politics and media create existential challenges for our clients.”

Co-Founders of Giles George, Patrick George and Rebekah Giles, said: “We have always believed that the law is one part of a much bigger picture. Our clients increasingly demand a multidisciplinary approach to helping them navigate high stakes threats and opportunities.”
