Jo Sanders

Jo Sanders joined Withers in 2019 to take over the London-based reputation and privacy team, which has since expanded in size and the scope. Sanders often joins forces with her predecessor Amber Melville-Brown (who is now based in New York to head up Withers’ global media arm) to work on cases where there’s a significant cross-border element. ‘The baton[-passing] arrangement is great,’ she says. ‘From a practical perspective, it can help us extend the day.’

Sanders believes a reputation management plan should be built into all HNWs’ legal strategies: ‘Privacy is a right that everybody has, and you need to think about how you want to exercise that right ahead of privacy being breached.’ Highlights include securing a public apology and out-of-court settlement for Laurence Fox in his libel complaint in response to Tweets by the actors’ union Equity and defending a PEP and family members against forfeiture orders issued by the NCA.
