Reputation Management

Hodge Jones & Allen Solicitors have carved out a niche practice of acting for high profile individuals (celebrities, company executives, business leaders, sporting figures and business entities) dealing with reputation management.

The need for this can arise in many ways and comes in different forms:

  • You may have received contact from a newspaper about an imminent article or from a broadcaster about an imminent news piece or documentary about you.
  • Your regulator might have contacted you because they have received a freedom of information request about you from a newspaper.
  • You might be in the public eye and a member of your family may have got into trouble. You will be keen to ensure that this matter remains private.

Experts in Reputation Management Cases

Hodge Jones & Allen have a lot of experience in handling these types of circumstances and many more. We have naturally been providing advice on how to handle reputational matters for years. This stems from our decades long experience of criminal and regulatory investigations started against high profile individuals and companies. Likewise our decades long experience of being involved in high profile matters that have required us to comment in the media. We also have a specialist team that can assist with deleting criminal records.

Daily, different cases that we deal with appear in the press or on the internet. We are frequently called upon to comment on cases in the press or appear on the news or in documentaries. This means we have an intimate understanding of how the press and how the media works. This is in addition to longstanding contacts within media.

We can build upon and rely on this to manage a situation for you, where possible. This means:

  • Diplomacy and negotiation when it comes to either avoiding or managing a publication or broadcast about you.
  • Managing the content and detail of any publication or broadcast.
  • Advice on statements to issue to the media where appropriate.
  • Manage the provision of information to the media thereby ensuring some control in what is published or broadcasted about you.

Protecting Your Reputation Is Key

We are also very experienced in dealing with regulators in making representations about disclosure based on Freedom of Information requests. We have successfully avoided articles being published through persuading a regulator not to release the material that a newspaper needed to publish an article.

Expert Solicitors

Of course, situations can arise which fall outside the realms of diplomacy and negotiation. If the circumstances justify it then we are able to assist you in taking the necessary action. This includes providing advice on injunctions if this becomes necessary.

Decades of Experience

Ultimately the best way to avoid any adverse publicity is to ensure that an investigation, whether criminal or regulatory, is swiftly concluded in your favour. We are considered to be one of the best firms in the UK at ensuring this where possible. There are numerous cases that we have acted in over the years involving high profile individuals which have concluded with the prosecuting agency taking no further action and the matter never ever being reported in the media.
