Charlotte Harris

Spear’s Review

Charlotte Harris made her name in the phone-hacking scandal, when she took on News International on behalf of her clients and played a key role in the Leveson Inquiry.

Previously a partner at Mishcon de Reya, Harris joined Kingsley Napley in 2015 to launch its media and reputation management unit, later moving to Brown Rudnick in 2023. She works with HNWs, MPs, celebrities and sports stars.

‘The thing that really makes people nervous is whether or not they’re going to get a knock at the door and someone’s going to take a photograph of them,’ Harris has previously told Spear’s. ‘So it’s all about trying to help clients and protect them in those anxiety-ridden circumstances.’
