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, 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.

Adviser Profile

'We use the law to protect our client's information, reputation and security, often on a global basis; says Gerrard Tyrrell, who counts numerous household names as clients, including the Royal Family.

'Importantly, we also protect the integrity, accuracy and availability of our clients' information. Our clients are mostly UHNWs, corporates and brands,' he adds. 'We represent the owners and executives of some of the world's most high profile companies and their founders, as well as acting for some of the world's most well-known celebrities.'

A senior partner and head of the media and information group at the firm, Tyrrell specialises in law relating to the creation, protection and use of information. The department deals with all aspects of information law, covering defamation, breach of privacy, copyright, data laws and the media. 'We are highly and uniquely experienced in dealing with the legal issues in our specialist areas faced by leading individuals, family offices, global corporations and brands,' Tyrrell explains. 'We work with a broad range of globally known clients, who come to us because of our experience and know-how.'

The last 12 months has continued to be exceptionally busy both for me personally and for my Group,' says Tyrrell. “We aim to work with clients on a strategic basis taking a long-term view of our clients’ aims and then devise strategies with them as to how to achieve their objectives. As ever, the work that we have been involved in continues to be often ground-breaking and is regularly commented upon in the media.”

‘Gerrard is particularly well known for his extensive work with the Royal Family and similar high profile figures… and ultra-high net worth individuals in relation to the protection of their business and family life’
