What the team is known for

Trident DMG is a Washington, DC-based boutique, serving clients on the communications aspects of a wide range of areas of the law in disputes ranging from bankruptcy to congressional and regulatory investigations. The agency is staffed by advisers with practical experience in senior governmental positions, including acting for the White House during previous presidential administrations.

Strengths

"They excel across the board, but they are particularly effective in navigating communications strategies adjacent to litigation. Josh and Adam’s legal background and broad experience really gives them an edge in terms of having a deep understanding of strategy."

"They were passionate advocates. They really embraced the interests we were representing in the case, never minded jumping on planes, and worked really hard."

Work highlights

Represented the Official Committee of Tort Claimants in the bankruptcy proceedings of PG&E Corporation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company that began after the 2017 and 2018 Californian wildfires.

Notable practitioners

Adam Goldberg has experience advising both the DND and President Clinton, assisting with communications strategies for impeachment and other investigations. Since co-founding Trident DMG, Goldberg has advised individuals and corporations undergoing strenuous investigatory scrutiny. A client says of him: "He was very dedicated and completely understood the subject matter of the litigation, meaning he was able to craft a really effective media strategy. He really understood what it was about."

Praised as "the ultimate professional," Joshua Galper is an attorney who has worked on various US presidential campaigns, including that of Barack Obama in 2008. Galper has a focus on public policy and government relations, privacy and cybersecurity. One client reports: "He is an excellent strategist. What's especially great is his ability to help analyse a problem quickly from multiple dimensions and distil that into a course of action. He’s extremely effective in that way and experienced in the legal, political and media arenas. He brings really sound judgement in navigating the issues."

Lanny Davis was the former Special Counsel to President Bill Clinton in the White House and managed communications and controversies during his administration. He co-founded Trident DMG and handles a comprehensive portfolio of high-profile clients undergoing media scrutiny and legal proceedings. As one market commentator remarks, "there's no one like him. So politically connected and a lot of what he does you'll never see. A brilliant tactician, he's superb."
