Sometimes public relations (PR) can be a necessary and effective tool in an overall litigation strategy.
In some cases, PR can be used to create sufficient pressure to bring the other side to the negotiating table. Other times, PR can be used to tell your side of the story to prospective jurors. In other instances, good communication can simply be a way to protect your valuable reputation in the midst of a caustic legal matter.
The Litigation PR Process
When we are brought into a litigation situation, we are typically retained by our client’s legal counsel to ensure a close coordination between their legal and PR strategies and to ensure protection of confidential communication.
Our award-winning PR team works with our clients to:
- Develop and maintain clear and credible messaging
- Identify and prioritize their most important stakeholders
- Devise a customized plan to deliver these messages through the most appropriate channels
We will either serve as our client’s public spokesperson or help them identify and train one within their organization. We will also advise and assist clients with external communication (such as the news media) as well as internal communication (employees and other stakeholders).
