Spear's Review

Simkins partner Gideon Benaim has noticed an increase in work from HNWs and businesspeople. He also represents a number of celebrities and sports stars. In 2018 Benaim won ‘Case of the Year’ at the Spear’s Wealth Management Awards in recognition of his landmark battle on behalf of Sir Cliff Richard in his case against the BBC and the South Yorkshire Police. The High Court ruled that the BBC infringed on the singer’s privacy in its reporting of a police raid on his home in 2014. ‘It was a case of being in the eye of the storm,’ recalled Benaim. Where possible, however, ‘preparation and prevention is the best way to deal with things’.
