Overview & History: 

Based in the heart of legal London, for over a decade Maltin PR has handled a range of national and international, high-profile, complex and sensitive litigation support campaigns.

This award-winning firm handles the PR and litigation support aspects of many of the largest cases in the international commercial courts. Recent examples include a £200m litigation against one of the largest banks in the world, the repatriation of funds in a $300m international fraud, a $1.25bn commercial court claim arising from international sanctions, and a politically charged litigation over the return of $2bn in gold.

Maltin PR provides clients with a wide range of PR and litigation support services in order to assist them in delivering their strategic aims throughout litigation. They successfully control narratives, protect reputations and conduct targeted media campaigns on a variety of multi-jurisdictional litigations, including those involving international banks, group actions, regulatory and financial prosecutions, and disputes involving high-profile individuals and international corporates.

Maltin PR also has a strong track-record of promoting group actions, and handling the PR around group action litigations. In particular, the firm is expert in developing case studies from among the claimant group and packaging these for the national press and broadcast media.

The firm works effectively to deliver clients’ PR objectives through all stages of the litigation process, working closely with leading solicitors and counsel throughout to facilitate a joined-up strategic approach to litigations. In doing so, it supports clients’ overall legal strategies as well as ultimate communications objectives, ensuring that the bigger picture is not missed in the trenches of the litigation. Working with publicly available documents such as your particulars of claim, the Firm shapes narratives from the outset and assists with both investigations and evidence gathering. Maltin PR works closely with key journalists, providing them with background briefings and the tools to report on the latest developments in complex and high-value commercial disputes.

The firm maximises exposure where beneficial to clients’ objectives but also ensures that press interest is kept to a minimum when this is desirable. It also assists journalists in focussing on clients’ key themes, mitigating the impact of the other side’s press briefings.

Maltin PR secures results quickly and relishes being brought into complex projects, including those which require lateral thinking and a long-term, strategic approach. The firm is also highly experienced in working with corporate investigation firms, assisting in preparing the strategy, identifying key areas for investigation and promoting the results.
