Schillings is pleased to announce its ranking by Chambers & Partners as one of the leading firms in business intelligence and investigations. This is Chambers’ first ever guide to investigators in litigation support. Sources consulted as part of the ranking process commended Schillings’ investigative capabilities, particularly in securing evidence and actionable data from public records.
“They’re always looking for unique and interesting ways to solve issues,” remarked an industry insider. “Their sweeping of public records is innovative”, added a market expert, “a lot of firms aren’t as proficient or accomplished at that. They’ve set the bar to some degree”.
Schillings partner Juliet Young was ranked as one of five notable practitioners. As head of investigations and specialises in designing, implementing and developing open-source intelligence expertise for the firm and its clients.
“She’s, for my money, the best open-source investigator working in London,” said a leading fraud lawyer, while another interviewee commented “She’s great, hard-working. She’s an intellectual investigator: Juliet cares about digging through the detail and does it completely without ego”.
Rod Christie-Miller, Schillings’ CEO, added “Intelligence gathering is vital work, both during a crisis and in helping people anticipate and avoid future reputation, security and privacy issues. It’s important this work is conducted ethically and legally – and we’re really proud of our innovative team who do just that, and do it brilliantly”.
