Sam Ahuja’s promotion to Partner grows Schillings’ tech and investment sector expertise

Schillings is pleased to announce the promotion of Sam Ahuja from Legal Director to Partner, effective from 1 May 2022. Sam’s expertise in the tech and investment sectors advances the continued growth of the strategic plan of the Schillings partnership, with the largest team of reputation and privacy specialists in the world.

Having initially begun with Schillings as a Solicitor in 2013, Sam re-joined the firm as Legal Director in 2020 from leading fintech Revolut, where he gained a deep knowledge of how to mitigate the reputational risks inherent to rapid growth technology organisations and their founders. His experience in this area will prove of immense value to clients who face similar challenges within the digital realm and who want to decisively get in front of potential risks.   

More generally, Sam has spent a substantial part of his career specialising in devising and implementing long-term strategies for international high-profile clients and corporates. This has spanned a range of defamation, privacy, and commercial issues.

On his promotion, Sam commented: ‘In a progressively tech focused and digital environment, the reputation, privacy and security challenges facing our clients are constantly evolving, and I look forward to enhancing our client offering to mitigate these threats.’

Head of Legal, Jenny Afia, commented: ‘Sam is a brilliant lawyer and a lovely guy so we couldn’t be happier that he is joining the partnership.’
