Mishcon de Reya last week launched a new media and public advocacy group for clients wanting to protect their reputations.
The eight-strong team will help clients manage their media profiles and defend them in court. It will target corporate clients and individuals, with involvement in lobbying to secure corporate and institutional reputations.

Libson said: "We represent people in courts, but nowÃ¢Â€Â¦ we're representing people in other forums. Much of our work is public advocacy."
