The Lawyer revealed last week that the SRA is writing to some law firms asking them to check whether they have any links to Mossack Fonseca.

It is clear by the media storm surrounding the information contained in the leaked documents that any link to Mossack Fonesca - no matter how tenuous - could result in reputational damage. 

Law firms need to think carefully about their internal and external messaging regarding any connection, as well as how they handle any clients' communications and reputational crises where they are implicated in the scandal.
