Specialist areas

 

Litigation and disputes PR

A legal dispute is not just fought in court, but also in the court of public opinion. A win or a loss in a court may have long term reputational implications. Our team works closely with lawyers to ensure that their clients’ reputation is being managed from the very beginning of a dispute, right to the end of a trial and beyond.

 

Arbitration

Arbitration proceedings are always highly confidential. Therefore, the risk of a leak could have significant consequences for both parties. Our team is experienced in creating strategies designed to mitigate risk and prepare for any potential fallouts from high-value, high-profile arbitration procedures.

 

Class actions

Notifying and engaging with a class is a crucial element in the success of class actions. We create bespoke, data-driven and integrated communications campaigns to ensure awareness of and drive participation in class actions. We have extensive experience in managing all aspects of communications for campaigns– from message-testing to website creation and media relations.
