Jeremy Clarke-Williams

Spear’s Review

As head of the reputation, privacy and defamation arm of Penningtons Manches Cooper, Jeremy Clarke-Williams has become a respected adviser to everyone from politicians to business leaders and sports stars to comedians. He sees his role as meeting clients’ objectives while administering the ‘tough love’ that is often necessary when it comes to reputation management. 

‘After more than 30 years, one has seen how most situations play out,’ he adds.

He warns would-be clients against litigating through the media (‘it rarely improves your position’), and stresses that what can be achieved legally might not always make sense commercially. The latter is particularly relevant in online cases, which can emanate from anywhere in the world.

Adviser Profile

Jeremy advises primarily on defamation, breach of confidence, misuse of private information and the Data Protection Act 2018/GDPR, as well as on the related areas of harassment and the Human Rights Act 1998.

Jeremy has been ranked as one of the leaders in his field by The Legal 500 and Chambers UK for many years. Impressed commentators quoted in Chambers UK name him as ‘a solicitor of vast experience in every aspect of practice, both in prosecuting and avoiding litigation’.

Sources also state: ‘His sympathetic personality and wealth of experience have made him an unerring judge of the strengths and weaknesses of all the players on both sides of any dispute.’
