Partner at Brabners, Paul Lunt is a commercial litigator and sports lawyer by occupation. Yet he recently made headlines for his expertise in reputation law when he represented Coleen Rooney against Rebekah Vardy in the so-called 'Wagatha Christie' case.
His work in this case helped him to victory in the 2022 Spear's Awards, where he was named Reputation Lawyer of the Year.
The Spear's judging panel felt he was ‘a slam-dunk winner’ of the award. 'He had a very difficult, headline-grabbing case,’ the judges noted. ‘But the trial was beautifully orchestrated – Paul Lunt was pulling all the strings.’
Lunt has also represented a host of sporting professionals including Wayne Rooney and England Cricket Captain, Ben Stokes, the latter of which involved a complex case relating to a breach of privacy.
He has been featured in both Chambers and the Legal 500 and is described as 'astute and knowledgeable with a very proactive commercial approach to resolving disputes.'
