What the team is known for

Sard Verbinnen is an international legal and financial public relations firm with a comprehensive litigation support offering out of its US offices in New York, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington DC. The agency has extensive experience in advising clients that are subject to enforcement actions by government entities, as well as on private litigation such as matters of sexual harassment and employee misconduct. Its staff consists of former attorneys, journalists and, in some cases, practitioners from both industries.

Strengths

"You get the senior partners' time and attention, but the wider team is also extremely strong. Work products and materials are fast, efficient and well written, in the sense that they understand the legal risks, that one word can trigger a whole new risk, especially in an unfolding situation. They understand the risks of saying too much."

"They have a global footprint and a great reputation among the editorial boards of major top-tier media. When clients want to have access to that, it's necessary to have conversations at the highest levels of, say, the New York Times or the Wall Street Journal, and they have the relationships to facilitate that."

Notable practitioners

George Sard is the chair and co-CEO at the agency. Sard is highly attuned to the required communications responses necessary to handle high-profile litigation or other sensitive legal and regulatory matters. He is commended by various market insiders as "terrific,""a big name" in crisis and litigation PR, and "operating at the highest level of corporate communications."
