Gerrard Tyrrell

Spear's Review

‘The philosophy of the firm is best summed up by the statement made when it was founded: “We do interesting work for interesting people”,’ says Gerrard Tyrrell of Harbottle & Lewis, who counts numerous household names as clients, including the Royal Family.

He’s also explained to Spear’s previously – at the firm’s offices next to the Savoy – that video-games entrepreneurs are a growing constituency, noting that one such client ‘writes code from a beach in Mexico’.

A recipient of the Spear’s Outstanding Achievement award in 2017, Tyrrell advises on everything from information protection to defamation, litigation and advertising issues. The senior partner has four decades’ worth of experience in this field, and has stayed at the firm since 1984.
