We defend you in the court of public opinion

SKDKnickerbocker Litigation • Investigation • Regulation

You’re facing a lawsuit. Planning a difficult merger. Complying with a congressional investigation or a regulatory agency’s demand. In other words, you’re in a crisis.

You need a public relations partner skilled in working on complex legal issues and communicating through crises.

The sum of any company’s strength is its trustworthiness, credibility and reputation – all of which are formed in the court of public opinion and all of which are vulnerable to legal disputes, investigations and crises. The public takes sides quickly; without a coordinated communications strategy and on-call experts executing it, each second that ticks by weakens your opportunity to shape the narrative.

SKDK has deep expertise communicating around litigation, mergers, regulatory crises, consumer protection cases and reputational crises. Our experience was forged in the private sector, in senior White House roles, at the Federal Trade Commission, in the Departments of Justice, Treasury and Transportation, at other federal agencies, and in state houses across the country.
