Rod Christie-Miller

Spear’s Review

Schillings chairman and partner Rod Christie-Miller spearheaded the transformation of Schillings from a media law firm to an all-purpose protective unit for HNWs.

‘[The purpose] of Schillings is to give more services to existing clients, to find adjacent services to give to those clients, and to find further clients, and we’re doing all three,’ he says. Christie-Miller has brought intelligence experts, investigators, risk consultants and cyber specialists under one roof.

The firm also has senior figures from military, banking and government backgrounds to bolster its international offering. ‘We think we’re slightly different, and we have this extra-legal capability all within the legal wrapper,’ he explains.

Power List Profile

Rod specialises in safeguarding the privacy and reputations of corporations, brands and public figures, particularly in the worlds of global business and politics. Much of his focus is international in nature and whilst many of the matters he works on have a media element, he often advises on threats to reputation and privacy that emanate from non-media sources, such as malicious insiders, disgruntled business partners, activist investors or simply those with an axe to grind. In every instance, the ability to offer practical legal advice at speed is vital. Rod is ranked as a leader in his field in Chambers & Partners, the Spear’s 500, the Spear’s Reputation Management index and the Private Client Global Elite index.
