Schillings increase focus on core offering

02 March 2019

Keith Schilling, Chairman and Senior Partner at Schillings, commented on their latest strategic move: "we want to focus much more on our core offering – an award winning international law firm specialising in protecting privacy, security and defending reputations. We will continue to grow and recruit the best talent from a broad range of legal skill sets. The Schillings Family team will transfer over to a new business led by Davina Katz at the start of April, based in London’s Marylebone. This is a very exciting time for Davina and her team, and we wish her all the best in her new venture.”

Commenting on the move, Davina Katz said: "Schillings is the leading practice at the cutting edge of privacy and reputation law. It has been a privilege to work with them and we are sure we will have occasion, along with other law firms, to make use of their reputation and privacy legal offering combined with intelligence investigations and cyber, as part of our new business model”.
