Almost fifty percent of domestic companies have been confronted at least once with legal disputes which caused a public sensation and sparked public discussion. In recent years, an increasing number of civil and criminal proceedings have been followed and commented upon by journalists. Since then the legal system has learned how to deal with media attention and media pressure. Companies must prepare to do the same. For in public perception, what counts is not only the circumstances and facts presented by lawyers and seen as highly complex by outsiders, but the moods and atmospheres that arise during the case. The public can pronounce someone guilty long before any court. But premature condemnation by the media can be counteracted by professional litigation communications. We support companies through professional publicity work before, during and after legal disputes, and always in close coordination with the consultancy team consisting of lawyers, auditors, tax advisors, etc.
Five Topics in Using Litigation Communications
We coordinate the communication departments of those involved, and act as a communications director, internally and towards the outside.
We are available round the clock to companies in crisis as a sparring partner, and if needed for the short term, as a spokesperson.
We supervise companies in public offerings and capital increases and support them in consistently maintaining relations with crucial dialogue groups.
We pursue a unified approach and support our clients in all issues of internal and external communication, including corporate identity, corporate culture, corporate design and corporate behaviour.
We support companies by positioning their messages and interests accurately with political decision-makers.
