Why Slateford?

When facing a threat to reputation, you face dual perils: don’t do enough and fail to avoid harm, or do the wrong things and make it worse. We are experts at guiding you to the narrow path between the two to achieve better results.

Road sign indicating a treacherous route

We are a specialist law firm that helps businesses and individuals handle serious issues and crises that impact their reputation, privacy and freedom to operate. Our clients range from the world’s largest listed companies to prominent athletes and artists, assisting them through a diverse range of problems – from being blackmailed to facing investigations, and allegations of misconduct through to dealing with harassment and fixated risks.

We are specialists in the application of media law, while using our broad experience of where problems come from to devise strategies that resolve the underlying problems that cause issues. We set out two years ago to do things differently in how we work and how we advise, and clients see this in long-term relationships making better decisions to handle their problems.

Our advice is not like other media law firms: using the same old precedents and tactics will get the same old results.

Our work is recognised with numerous award nominations including Crisis Law Firm of the Year (British Legal Awards 2022), Boutique Disputes Firm of the Year (The Lawyer 2021) and Reputation Management Law Firm of the Year (Magic Circle Awards 2022).
