Gillian Duffy

Spear’s Review

Schillings partner Gillian Duffy combines expertise in reputation management and privacy issues with litigation skills honed as an advocate. While her primary objective is to prevent her HNW clientele ending up in litigation, the courts are sometimes unavoidable.

At times like these, every HNW would want Duffy and the rest of the team by their side. ‘We are the only business in the world to deploy, under one roof, lawyers, intelligence experts, investigators, cyber specialists, risk consultants and senior people from the military, banking and government,’ Duffy says. ‘Having such a range of expertise at our disposal ensures every dimension of our client’s crisis is covered.’ Duffy has a bachelor’s degree in history and began her career at Appleby.

Adviser Profile

A partner at Schillings since 2019, Gillian's adroit command of commercial litigation sees her resolving frequently taut and complex multi-jurisdictional disputes, both pre and post crisis. Having practised as an advocate, Gillian is able to bring her front-line litigation skills to bear as a reputation defence lawyer of rare parallel, controlling both the broad picture and delicate nuances that so often determine a successful outcome.

Whilst her primary objective is to prevent a client facing litigation, in instances where it is necessary and unavoidable, Gillian specialises in identifying potential reputational threats and putting in place integrated counter measures to mitigate the risks to a client’s reputation.
