A reputation for protecting reputations
Schillings is one of the UK's top law firms. We specialise in protecting and managing the reputations of international corporations, brands, celebrities and high-profile business people. In fact, defamation, privacy and copyright are at the heart of the firm's work, prompting The Independent to call Schillings a "spectacularly efficient media law firm."
Put simply, we use the law to protect the reputations, privacy and confidentiality of our clients, helping them and their advisers to manage what is published and broadcast about them. While clients value us for our incisive judgment, rigour, and of course, our absolute discretion, we only go through the courts as a last resort. In other words, our strategy is mediation before litigation.
We provide extensive litigation and commercial legal advice to many leading lights in business, government and entertainment. Our commercial and corporate clients include Stelios Haji-loannou and EasyGroup, steel maker Arcelor Mittal, Icelandic bank Kaupthing, Grant Thornton, GlaxoSmithKline, Northern Rock, The Law Society, and leading investment bank Collins Stewart.
We have also acted for notable private clients including Naomi Campbell, Madonna, David Walliams, JK Rowling, Nicole Kidman, Will Smith, Nicolas Cage, Keira Knightley, Angelina Jolie, Roman Polanski and Kate Winslet. And we have several world-famous sports stars among our clients, such as Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Wherever the issue arises - in newspapers, TV, radio or online - Schillings is set up to respond quickly, decisively and effectively.
We also have flourishing sports, music and matrimonial practices, and a proven commercial dispute resolution department that applies the same skill and tactical excellence to commercial litigation as it does to media litigation.
