Profile

Emma Woollcott

Description

‘The key is to know which battles to fight – and to fight these hard’, says Emma Woollcott, partner and head of Mishcon’s reputation protection team. ‘We take time to understand your world, your priorities and your challenges, and we use our instinct, experience and intelligence to create a strategy and solution suited to you. We make your problems our own’.

Woollcott has specialised in media litigation for the past 15 years, 13 of which have been spent at Mishcon working predominantly in strategic proactive reputation protection and crisis management, generally for HNWs and the businesses they own. As a result, she has led on many of the firm’s high and low profile matters, most of which are highly sensitive. ‘Because of our success, they do not attract publicity,’ she explains. ‘It’s an honour when clients call to consult on issues that matter to them.’

Clients are successful business people, politicians, well-known brands, entrepreneurs, start-ups, celebrities, and even campaigners. Together, they provide a broad range of problems for Woollcott and her team to resolve. This could involve intervening in UK family proceedings to prevent breaches of privacy, or defending clients facing various politically-driven defamatory campaigns, for example.

When she isn’t in the office, Woollcott likes to spend time on the coast. She recommends the book The Mother Of All Jobs, which she describes as ‘aimed at keeping career-driven mothers sane. I’d recommend it to any parent with a big job and small kids.
