Once considered the exclusive domain of law firms, competition policy is now part of a wider stakeholder environment.
As the media and public start paying more attention to competition cases and the related business implications, the importance of having an integrated media and public relations strategy to complement legal activities is no longer an oddity—it’s a necessity.
Hill+Knowlton Strategies' competition team is made up of former lawyers, journalists, and EU institution officials. We understand the law, the need for confidentiality and the importance of using one word over another. We also understand the highly sensitive nature of media outreach around sensitive cases. In developing integrated communications and public affairs strategies, we base our approach on advancing your legal objectives.
We can assist clients at all stages of a procedure – from when rumours start to fly about a possible investigation to the follow-up and aftermath of the court’s decision.
