Niri Shan, head of media and reputation management, has been recognised for another year in the Spear's Reputation Managers Index as one of the UK's top ten reputation lawyers for high net worth individuals.
He is joined in the index by senior counsel, Michael Yates, who has been listed as a recommended lawyer.
The annual Spear's rankings are drawn up on the basis of peer nominations, telephone and face-to-face interviews, data supplied by law firms, as well as information gathered by the editorial and research teams.
Regarded as a 'polished operator', Niri's measured approach and work in resolving a particularly salacious allegation involving high-profile individuals "through a letter and a series of phone calls" have been highlighted.
Niri's recognition in the Spear's Index comes off the back of his band 1 ranking for Defamation/Reputation Management in Chambers High Net Worth 2022 with peers describing him as follows: "Niri’s expertise, knowledge of case law and contacts are first class; however, his calmness and strategic insight are what make him stand out. He is readily available and communicates guidance with an ease and simplicity." "He has excellent tactical judgement and client-handling skills."
A skilled communicator and trusted confidant to his clients, Niri provides high levels of discretion and care in very challenging and life-changing circumstances. With his experienced team's support, he protects more than his clients' privacy and reputation, extending to their personal and commercial interests, the safety and privacy of their families, and the protection of their most valuable assets – their peace of mind and the freedom to live their lives.
Niri Shan commented: "It is fantastic to have my position in the market recognised with inclusion in both the Spear's Reputation Managers Index and the Chambers High Net Worth directory. These accolades are reflective of the significant depth of talent and skill in the team I work with each day and a testament to the service we provide in protecting the reputation and privacy of our clients against ever-evolving threats."
