„Life is unfair but remember: sometimes it is unfair in your favor.“
John F. Kennedy, US President 1961-63
Legal disputes have always been part and parcel of national and international business life. Irrespective of whether they revolve around businesses or individuals, they are generally characterized by a high level of complexity – and this complexity impacts on journalists that today have to cover an increasingly broader remit. These journalists often do not have the time to follow court cases on a daily basis in situ or look into complex specialist areas of the law. As such, the PR work of the parties involved assumes a great deal of importance and responsibility.
The ability to put forward the case, one’s argumentation and the next steps in a clearly prepared, understandable manner to the press helps ensure that the represented position is given appropriate consideration.
Areas in which we advise international law firms as well as businesses, private equity companies and hedge funds internationally in internal and external communications include:
- Capital markets and corporate governance (shareholder claims, mediation procedures, regulatory investigations, etc.)
- Anti-trust litigation
- Penal/civil investigations and lawsuits against businesses or their executive bodies
