UK Law Firm Launches HNW Online Reputation Service

The UK law firm has partnered with an intelligence business management operation to launch the new service.

Collyer Bristow, the UK private wealth law firm, and Digitalis Reputation, the intelligence business, have partnered to launch a new digital reputation management service.

The service will help protect high-net-worth individuals from exposure to damaging material found online and in the dark web, the firms said in a statement.

It scans the web for any material or content that is defamatory, fictitious or which the client wishes to remain private. If any damaging or private information is identified, Collyer Bristow’s media and privacy team is able to undertake legal action to have the content removed. 

An ongoing monitoring service is also available as well as educational sessions on how best to maintain privacy online. The service can also be extended to family members in order to further safeguard the personal information of the individual and their wider family.

“HNWs and ultra high-net-worth individuals are a key target area for criminals on the dark web – so they need to ensure they are protected as best as they can,” said Steven Heffer, partner at Collyer Bristow. “The firm has a reputation for innovation, and a collaboration with a leading intelligence firm like Digitalis was a natural next step for us. Sensitive personal information that is on the internet can be very dangerous and can easily be used to exploit individuals. This service provides HNWIs and UHNWIs with the reassurance that any defamatory material or leaked information on them online can be tracked and removed.”
