Sugar daddies beware - Crisis management solicitors

  • Posted
MPR solicitors Private Client Defence Team were instructed by a HNW client to crisis manage and advise in a blackmail case.
Our client had used the services of a well known international dating site for typically wealthy older men. He became the victim of an elaborate blackmail plot.
Valuing total discretion and a preference to no police involvement, he sought our advice and crisis management services.
We devised a multi scenario strategy with the end goals being: the immediate family must never know; to shut down the blackmail and to avoid any publicity and more importantly not to potentially incriminate the client over allegations of sexual assault some involving a minor.
We were able to monitor all communications that were occurring live between the blackmailers and the client; we were able to take control of the situation and through various actions avoiding police involvement were able to terminate the blackmail to the satisfaction of the client achieving his 3 end results and without any payments being handed over to the blackmailers.
We had a team on standby should police involvement be required.
This involved high level Partner involvement and monitoring throughout the process with the client over a 4 day period.
