When disgraced media mogul Max Clifford went on trial accused of sex crimes, the whole world was watching.
Every day the court case was an intimidating siege of reporters, cameramen and photographers.
Fearing she’d crumble under the media pressure, his victim Sharon Elliot contacted Medavia for help.
After her key testimony saw Clifford jailed for eight years, Sharon decided she needed to speak out.
She held her silence after the attack for 30 years, with the trauma causing her to self-sabotage relationships, career opportunities and friendships.
She was determined to encourage other sex crime victims not to suffer in silence too. But, she needed Medavia’s help to be heard.
Working on behalf of Sharon, Medavia negotiated for her to give carefully-controlled exclusive interviews to the Sunday Mirror and Mail on Sunday newspapers, with our company director Jack Falber by her side throughout.
We then accompanied her to the ITV studios, where she bravely and eloquently relived her ordeal for This Morning presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby. Offers from national women’s magazines followed.
Medavia provided discrete support and advice from the very first day Sharon emailed us for help, and we’re extremely proud to represent her.
