Maltin PR was founded 12 years ago by Tim Maltin, who was named Outstanding Individual of the Year at the Citywealth Brand Management and Reputation Awards, and recently listed as one of the top five Crisis Communications experts in London.
Based at their Covent Garden offices in the heart of legal London and comprising 25 communications experts, for over a decade they have handled a range of national and international, high-profile, complex and sensitive communication and litigation support campaigns, including the Leveson Inquiry, the Libor benchmark-rigging prosecutions, major group action litigations and the campaign in defence of Legal Professional Privilege, as well as international banking and commercial litigation matters.
They are regularly asked to work on many of the most significant cases in the UK commercial courts, including a £200m litigation against one of the largest banks in the world, PR surrounding the repatriation of funds in a $300m international fraud and a £1.25bn claim in the commercial court arising from international sanctions. They offer clients a wide range of services to support their strategic aims throughout litigation. They also successfully control narratives, protect reputations and conduct targeted media briefings on a variety of complex multi-jurisdictional commercial litigation cases, as well as those involving international banks, group action litigations, international political campaigns, high-profile regulatory and financial prosecutions, and disputes involving international corporates.
Maltin PR is recognised by Chambers and Partners as a leading Litigation PR and communications firm: “Clients appreciate the firm for being “very passionate about the cases they take on,” while a lawyer reports that “we were dealing with an organisation that gets badly beaten up in the press. The only firm we have used who have had any traction with this case are Maltin. Not a lot of the vanilla, large PR agencies could handle it.” The agency are also commended for “providing spot-on judgements” on how to engage with activists and agitators surrounding a case.” They are “an extremely talented, tightly knit professional outfit – they really understand the legal market.”
The Firm is a regular contributor to industry publications on Legal and Litigation PR matters, including the Legal 500 Litigation Country Comparative Guide, which recently published their essays on “The role of Litigation PR both outside and inside the courtroom” and “How to integrate legal and PR strategy to optimise litigation results“. Maltin PR is also a regular author of the Overview of Litigation PR for Chambers and Partners, the most recent of which focuses on the importance of maintaining hybrid court hearings post-pandemic and can be read here.
Maltin PR is also listed in Lawdragon’s Global 100 Leaders in Legal Strategy & Consulting as one of the top four Crisis Communications firms in London, and the Firm was recently shortlisted for PR Agency of Year at the CityWealth Brand Management and Reputation Awards 2021.
