Complainants and victims of sexual offences will have automatic lifelong anonymity. Those accused of sexual offending have no such legal protections. But help is available. No one wants the lives of their families blighted or the reputations of others who are blameless to be destroyed.  Yet careless press reporting can do just that. However, far fewer of the cases we handle lead to adverse press reports than you might think. As an expert, privately funded team we know that reputations matter. We are used to working sensitively with cases of local and national profile, supporting individuals and organisations of wide repute. A free press is a key part of a free democracy. So is respect for private and family life. We can help.
