Nick West, Partner and Chief Strategy Officer in Mishcon de Reya’s Technology, Strategy, and MDR R&D groups, has been featured in a recent thought leadership report on litigation PR entitled ‘Finding the right line: litigation PR in an evolving dispute ecosystem’ by reputation counsel Byfield.
The report is the result of surveys and interviews from a broad range of market participants in London, New York, Singapore, Paris and Dubai, on their attitudes to litigation PR.
Nick West examines the position from a litigation funder’s perspective, and how the growing focus on ESGs for businesses, investors, and governments around the world will provide “fertile ground” for a range of disputes.
Nick says, “We’ve already seen this trend happening in other jurisdictions, where groups of members of the public are bringing actions against governments’ decisions in the world of climate change, or shareholder cases are being brought against companies in the world of greenwashing. Individual actions are also being brought against corporates for not meeting regulatory obligations.”
Last year, Mishcon de Reya launched MDR Solutions I, a litigation finance venture, in partnership with Harbour.
Byfield provides reputation counsel to the legal sector by building brands, protecting reputations and supporting litigation.
