PRCG Ranked Among Top Strategic Communications Firms in U.S.



PRCG | Haggerty LLC is pleased to announce that the firm has been ranked as one of the leading public relations firms in the United States by Chambers and Partners, the premier worldwide legal directory ranking law firms and related services. PRCG was named among a select group of “PR & Communications” firms in the directory’s 2018 “Litigation Support” guide.

PRCG | Haggerty was lauded in client reviews in the guide, which noted the “enormous care, attention and passion” PRCG brings to each of the cases the firm works on, and the firm’s creation of “remarkable content” in support of sensitive legal and crisis communications issues.

Litigation PR “Powerhouse”

PRCG CEO James F. Haggerty was also ranked as one of the top litigation PR professionals in the United States. The listing called Haggerty “a powerhouse” who “thinks on a different level than most PRs.”

The ranking noted Haggerty’s background as a lawyer, stating “having been a lawyer, he brings a double barrel of legal and media experience” to legal matters. In addition to his work as a communications consultant, Haggerty is also a practicing lawyer and serves as lead lawyer in a proposed class action brought against the United Nations on behalf of victims of a cholera plague introduced in Haiti by UN peacekeepers in 2010. That case is currently before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York.

The Chambers review also recognized Haggerty’s landmark book on litigation PR, In the Court Of Public Opinion (ABA Books, 2009), now in its second edition, which is considered the leading book in the field. Haggerty’s new book Chief Crisis Officer: Structure and Leadership for Effective Communications Response was published in 2017 and has been featured in the Harvard Business Review, FORTUNE and Entrepreneur.

In 2017, Haggerty was honored by PR News as one of its “50 Game-Changers of PR” for his landmark work as “a trailblazer of litigation PR.”

The full ranking is available on the Chambers & Partners website.
