Schillings has been unable to save the career of Lord Browne, the chief executive of BP, who resigned yesterday after court documents revealed he had lied to a High Court judge.
Lord Browne had tried to get an injunction to stop the Mail on Sunday from publishing details of his affair with Jeff Chevalier, a Canadian student.
But court documents revealed that Lord Browne lied to the High Court about how he had met Chevalier.
The battle pitted Schillings in its customary role, battling against a national newspaper. Reynolds Porter Chamberlain acted for Associated Newspapers, with Liz Hartley the lead partner.
The firms instructed top counsel on the case. Schillings pitted Richard Spearman QC from 4-5 Gray’s Inn Square against RPC’s Victoria Sharp QC from One Brick Court.
All parties declined to comment.
