A boutique, global partner delivering reputationgrowthopportunities through a values-centred approach.

MD Communications is an award-winning international PR, brand, and reputation management consultancy to the legal and professional services sector.

Since 2010, we have helped global and domestic clients drive and protect their growth strategies while staying true to their purpose and vision.

A purpose and values-led approach has been a guiding principle for founder and CEO, Melissa Davis, who launched the firm to make a difference, not just to the legal and professional services sector, but across a broad range of pro bono activities and initiatives – ideally in collaboration with clients.

These values are embedded in our team of advisers, who each bring at least 15 years’ wide-ranging, senior-level experience. They have held leadership roles in marketing, communication and business development at leading law, accountancy and consultancy firms; run press teams across the legal and business media; and led award winning creative agencies working with leading brands in the luxury and consumer goods sector.

This breadth of expertise enables us to challenge, bring new perspectives and position clients for growth and momentum in their core practices and markets.

By delivering the right tactics and tools to our clients, we help build their brand, values, and reputation from inside and out. Establishing a foundation of change, vision and success that goes beyond the bottom line.

Pro bono work

MD Communications are proud supporters of the Parents Promise, which was launched to better protect the mental health of children, should their parents separate.

In January 2023, the campaign group launched an HR initiative at the Houses of Parliament to recognise separation as a ‘life event’, supported by companies including Tesco, ASDA, Unilever, Natwest Group, PwC, Vodafone and Metrobank.

MD Communications provided media support and this short film tells the story of the day and the subsequent media interest.
