Alex McCready

Spear's Review

Alex McCready began her career at magic circle firm Linklaters. She moved to Schillings on qualification where she worked with ‘a broad range of HNW clients, solving complex problems’. McCready joined Vardags’ reputation and privacy department in October 2018. She has quickly forged a reputation as one of the field's most outstanding young talents – and as a fierce protector of her clients. ‘Everyone deserves a private life,’ she says.

The solicitor recognises that defending a reputation from attack today requires specialist knowledge of how the internet is evolving. ‘Collaboration is key for us,’ she says. ‘We recognise – and indeed embrace – the fact that the law is just one part of our armoury. We actively seek to work with other private client advisers who also excel in their chosen field, like cyber experts, communications specialists and private security advisers.’

Adviser Profile

McCready is “the definitive reputation and privacy lawyer”, assisting prominent families and companies based in the UK and abroad. She advises clients on defending and protecting their reputation, as well as acting in times of crisis. McCready manages her clients’ “complex problems sensitively and discreetly”, whilst recognising the time sensitive nature of such cases.

Her expertise is recognised by inclusion in the Citywealth Leaders List, Future Leaders List, Top 100 Private Client Lawyers List and the Future Leaders Top 100 list. She was also in Management Today’s 35 under 35 in 2019. She regularly features in the media for expert legal commentary, on the BBC and ITV, TalkRadio, The Telegraph and Citywealth.
