Utilising a wide range of contacts in both the national, legal and client-facing trade press, we also support the day-to-day PR needs of law firms. Our legal clients include full-service international law firms, as well as several of the leading, specialist boutique law firms and barristers’ chambers. We position and promote law firms and key fee earners, raising their profiles to further build and maintain the reputation and profile of the Firm or Set.
We are regularly asked to work on many of the most major cases in the UK commercial courts, including a £200m litigation against a High Street Bank, PR surrounding the repatriation of funds in a $300m international fraud and the defence of ongoing investigations by prosecuting authorities on behalf of major international corporates. We offer clients wide ranging services to support their strategic aims throughout litigation. We have also successfully controlled narratives, protected reputations and conducted targeted media briefings on a variety of multi-jurisdictional litigation cases, as well as those involving international banks, group action litigations, international political campaigns, high-profile regulatory and financial prosecutions and disputes involving global natural resources companies.
We regularly contribute to legal publications about the latest developments in Litigation PR and Support, and we are one of the few Firms ranked in Chambers for our expertise in this area.
Law firms often ask us to work either through them or directly for their corporate clients, particularly those involved in high-stakes, complex commercial litigations and regulatory or prosecuting authority investigations. We liaise with corporate clients in a way which supports and adds value to the litigation strategy, and ensuring that the PR messages outside the courtroom reinforce the strategy inside it.
Our reputation management team works closely with high net worth individuals and corporates to protect their reputations, mitigating risks and ensuring public focus on the client’s narratives. Our team is also experienced in rehabilitating damaged reputations through carefully managed strategies, including thought leadership campaigns and ‘Right to be Forgotten’ applications, as well as working closely with leading defamation lawyers as required.
Corporates and individuals sometimes become embroiled in sudden media storms. These can often be international in nature, due to the global news cycle. Your reputation can suddenly be on the line, and often for things which you did not cause, and sometimes about which you were not aware until the story broke. We help our crisis communication clients to keep calm and execute effective PR strategies to recover their global reputations, and get their side of the story heard. Speed is often the key in these situations, as traction will be most effective while the story is still live, allowing us the air-space to change the narrative.
We assist our clients in getting their messages across to politicians and public bodies. On multiple occasions, we have successfully implemented public affairs campaigns for corporates, law firms and high net worth individuals, putting journalists and politicians together to create public interest campaigns which support our clients’ objectives.
How you communicate is often as important as what you communicate, and we have an in-house design studio which handles all print and digital client messaging, from a new group litigation website to a corporate newsletter or annual report. Our studio designs for corporates and professional services companies and understands appealing to specialist, targeted audiences, as well as supporting the litigation team on public interest and stakeholder campaigns.
