Global Network of Litigation PR Experts Grows with New Swiss Agency Partner

The Crisis and Litigation Communicators´ Alliance (CLCA), a global network of international Litigation PR specialists expands its success in 2019 by welcoming a new member firm to its network – the highly-respected Swiss agency Cabinet Privé de Conseils (CPC), based in Geneva and Bern.

Philippe Eberhard, founder and President of CPC, sees membership of the CLCA as having great potential for CPC´s clients to benefit from the network’s expertise:

“Since founding in 2004, we have gained considerable experience in Litigation and Crisis PR. We want to share our knowledge – especially in the Swiss market – with specialist partner agencies abroad. Switzerland is a global hub for businesses and has a strong international focus. In our CLCA membership we see substantial benefit for our clients, especially because of the ability to refer to internationally recognised Litigation and Crisis PR specialists when needed.”

Martin Jenewein from Schneider | Minar | Jenewein Consulting and Chairman of the CLCA comments:

“With our new member CPC, headquartered in Geneva, we not only add a leading Swiss Litigation PR specialist firm to our network, but also now have both the French and German speaking regions truly well covered. This will have the dual benefit of assisting international companies with interests anywhere in Switzerland, as well as supporting CPC’s existing clients with their transnational exposure.”

UK employment dispute with cross-border reputation/media advocacy implications

When several former members of Dresdner Kleinwort’s London-based management committee found themselves in dispute with the investment bank’s new owner, Commerzbank, earlier this year over unpaid severance and guaranteed bonus packages, media interest was not just confined to the UK where the legal claims were filed. Given the bank’s German HQ, the sizeable German government shareholding and that the Claimants ran global businesses within Dresdner Kleinwort with a significant German client base, the lawsuits attracted greater media attention in Germany than in the UK.
