Spear's Review

David Imison has spent ten years at Schillings leading and developing its advisory offerings, which have grown from a standing start to a team of over thirty client advisors. ‘I wear two hats,’ he tells Spear’s, during a break in his schedule. ‘The first involves helping our largest clients solve reputation and privacy problems; the other entails transforming the firm from a traditional law firm to a multidisciplinary reputation and privacy practice.’ In particular, he leads the firm’s intelligence and investigations and critical risk arms.

He specialises in guiding his clientele through complex, often politically exposed, issues.
