WHY THE RICH LOVE LONDON’S REPUTATION MANAGERS

On 8 June, an article in the Guardian is concerned with some of London’s aggressive “reputation management” law firms.  It says that media laws in England and Wales on defamation, privacy, confidentiality, copyright and data protection are notorious among the world’s investigative journalists.  So too, it says, is the industry of lawyers who use the English legal system to protect the reputations of their rich and powerful clients.  The UK government is pledging to level the playing field, in a move partly driven by Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.  The co-founder of OCCRP describes a near-constant stream of threats from British reputation lawyers to his organisation.
