Maltin PR is a London-based legal and corporate PR firm specialising in legal and litigation PR, and reputation management.
Maltin PR was founded 10 years ago by the former Global Head of Public Relations at Allen & Overy LLP, Iain Rodger; and the former Chairman of City PR firm Lehmann Communications, Tim Maltin.
Based at their Holborn offices in the heart of legal London and now comprising 20 individuals, for over a decade they have handled a range of national and international, high-profile, complex and sensitive litigation support campaigns, including the Leveson Inquiry, the Libor benchmark-rigging prosecutions, major group litigations and the campaign in defence of Legal Professional Privilege, as well as several international banking and commercial litigation matters.
They are regularly asked to work on many of the most major 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 wide ranging services to support their strategic aims throughout litigation. They also successfully control narratives, protect reputations and conduct 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 international corporates.
Maltin PR is recognised by Chambers and Partners 2018 as a leading Litigation Support PR 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.”
Iain Rodger led the team which won Press Campaign of the Year at the Legal Marketing Awards and Tim Maltin is a holder of the Institute of Public Relations Communications Award for Excellence.
Maltin are a regular contributors to industry publications on PR matters, including the Legal 500 Litigation Country Comparative Guide, which recently published our 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“.
