Once dubbed the ‘crisis king’, Lawrence Dore is a founding partner at DRD Partnership where he provides advisory services to leading players in the private client and wealth management industry, as well as their (U)HNW clientele.
With a background in communications from working at firms such as Citigate Dewe Rogerson and Brunswick, Dore is regarded as a go-to adviser in the litigation, risk preparedness and ESG reporting space.
Despite recognising that there is no substitute for hard work, he says he appreciates the importance of playing to your strengths when running both an agency and ensuring positive client outcomes.
A formative period at M&S taught me that agencies need to bring expertise to clients outside their comfort zone when facing moments of challenge or change. DRD has been built to meet this goal.
Our focus is tight. We have one of the largest litigation and crisis teams in London. DRD recruited Alasdair Douglas, Senior Partner of Travers Smith, as our Chair; Kate Miller (Allen & Overy); and lawyers from Fieldfisher and Linklaters. Jon McLeod (Brunswick) has launched our competition practice.
Our private client practice brings a team of ten under three partners to advise senior business figures. Partner-led counsel is why today we have clients across the globe who rely on us to protect their reputations.
