The Crisis & Litigation Communicators’ Alliance (CLCA) has announced that US crisis, litigation and public affairs communications firm LEVICK is a new member.
LEVICK, which employs almost 50 people in Washington DC, New York, Chicago and Toronto, Canada, has worked on high profile issues such as Guantanamo Bay, Dubai Ports, #BringBackOurGirls, the Catholic Church crisis, AIG and the Gulf oil spill.
The CLCA is an international network of independent, owner-managed PR firms specialising in crisis and high-stakes litigation PR advice.
Richard Levick, LEVICK chairman and CEO, said: “Membership in the CLCA means we can call on trusted, expert partners overseas when we need them. We have already worked hand-in-hand with several CLCA colleagues very effectively on a multi-million dollar litigation case introduced to us by the alliance, and we look forward to continuing this positive collaboration with all member firms whose calibre and expertise in their domestic markets is self-evidently impressive.”
CLCA chairperson, Louise Beeson of Bell Yard Communications, the CLCA’s co-founding agency in London, added: “LEVICK’s addition to our roster is excellent news for the CLCA. Our members wanted a strong partner firm in the US, the original home of litigation PR, not least because international disputes often involve a US dimension.
“LEVICK has an outstanding reputation and a rich experience of crisis and legal disputes ranging from criminal or regulatory matters on Wall Street to multi-party action following environmental disasters. We are excited to have them on board to share their know-how and expertise.”
Richard Levick has written four books, including two on crisis and litigation communications, and is a regular commentator in print and broadcast media.
