Litigation Support

We work closely with clients and  legal teams to protect a company’s reputation, ensuring that its position in a dispute or investigation is understood, and its communications support legal strategy.

Legal disputes and regulatory investigations can have profoundly long-lasting effects on reputation.

Such matters can appear complex and arcane to external and internal stakeholders. Communications plays a significant role in establishing context and translating arguments into language the court of public opinion understands.  

This requires a thorough understanding of the company, its objectives in the dispute, the larger business environment, and stakeholder sentiment.

Our Approach

Central to our role as counselor is vast experience, intellectual curiosity, dedication, and a sense of nuance and empathy. We think broadly about the implications of the dispute and prepare ahead of developments with thoughtful strategies, messaging, and tactics.

We have counseled clients around the globe in a multitude of commercial and criminal cases, such as civil litigation and arbitration; product liability and claims for compensation; governmental and regulatory issues; criminal proceedings; patent law; antitrust investigations; national security reviews and other areas.

We pride ourselves on adding value to and working well with the interdisciplinary teams involved.
