Before and after a litigation career with Seyfarth Shaw LLP, he handled PR, crisis and litigation communications for companies like OfficeMax, United Airlines and Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.

Katz earlier worked in his own shop and was a VP at Holland & Knight Strategic Communications.  

FTI CEO Edward Reilly said clients are increasingly looking to his firm to handle crises or major issues as global operations become more complex, public interest voices rise and forums for communication increase.
