Litigation PR

We support you in your communications during legal disputes. Everyone has a right to legal counsel in the court of law. But what about the court of public opinion? The public often reaches a verdict before a judge’s ruling is issued.

Reputational damage can be minimized the sooner legal and communications professionals team up and prepare strategies to deal with the challenge. After all, being right does not automatically mean receiving justice. You can win in the court, but loose in the public.

Case Studies

Entrepreneur

WMP supported the media work in the civil law proceedings of a renowned German entrepreneur and philanthropist against an internationally known top manager and group chairman in Germany. The plaintiff demanded repayment of a loan in the high single-digit millions. During the proceedings, the defendant and his lawyers employed drastic media activities and statements, some of which had to be denied and which were successfully put into perspective in the media coverage in the plaintiff’s favor.

Medium-sized enterprise

WMP begleitete die Kommunikation eines mittelständischen Unternehmens aus der Entsorgungsbranche, das wegen angeblichen Fehlverhaltens unter Beschuss von NGOs, Medien und Lokalpolitik geriet. WMP begleitete das komplexe und langjährige strafrechtliche Verfahren gegen mehrere Angeklagte, das aufgesplittet und vor unterschiedlichen Kammern verhandelt wurde, sowie zivilrechtliche Bestrebungen des Auftraggebers. Das Unternehmen konnte seinen Share of Voice erhöhen und seinen Standpunkt in der veröffentlichten Meinung in einer ausgewogeneren Berichterstattung berücksichtigt finden.
