Litigation PR

MD Communications can help you and your clients through the course of any legal action being taken at any stage within the court system in England and Wales.

We help to define a strategy and implement a tactical approach to the media around the most significant litigation cases. Working alongside the legal team, we manage reputation, ensure clarity in the media, and deal directly with the press, providing a professional buffer between your client and the media.

The team’s sole aim is to minimise risk and maintain reputation; this can be throughout the lifecycle of a case and is especially valuable around judgments. We are media law experts and have extensive knowledge of sub judice and compliance; we maintain the strictest processes to ensure full SRA compliance.

Our experts have been involved in some of the most significant litigation in the High Court, Appeals Court, and Supreme Court. They have been at the heart of some of the biggest clashes and most prominent media stories between corporates, governments, and individuals in the Courts of England and Wales, dealing with stories and cases that have shaped the law.

They have seen the legal system from all sides and can bring that gravitas and experience to your cases, regardless of the size and risk of a case.

From inquests of loved ones, judicial reviews against the government, and environmental claims against the World’s largest oil producers to allegations of rendition by the UK government, the team has over two decades of experience in handling the media around ground-breaking cases, helping clients tell their stories, or maintaining their privacy.

The teams’ knowledge of the media in this country and overseas is vast, and they can use their networks to ensure that what is important about a case is understood by the public or manage a story through the media so that it impacts as little as possible for your client.

For many people going through the legal process, it is a tense, distressing and, for many corporate clients, potentially ruinous process, and they need to feel that their team is the best team who have seen it all before, providing the best legal and media advice under pressure.

Please call us today to discuss how the MD Communications team can help you, your clients, and your cases.
