Agency Statement:

Sitrick And Company is not a traditional public relations firm. Our practice has a specialized focus. We concentrate in corporate, financial, transactional, reputation, litigation and crisis communication. Although best known for our work in sensitive situations, we have an extensive and successful practice in each of the foregoing areas.

Since our firm's founding 35 years ago, we have been consistently ranked among the top crisis and strategic communications firms in the nation. The New York Times called us "The City's Most Prominent Crisis Management Firm."

The majority of the firm's senior executives are former editors and reporters from news organizations that include The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Times of London, The New York Times, Bloomberg, Los Angeles Times and Forbes. We also have a former practicing attorney, business executives, and a retired 3-Star U.S. Army General.

Matters with which we have been involved include reputation restoration, litigation support of all kinds; intellectual property matters, allegations of stock manipulation, wrongful termination, contract disputes, allegations of fraud and fraudulent inducement, wrongful death claims, allegations of illegal drug use, SEC matters, and a variety of other white-collar crimes.

We have also handled criminal and civil cases against companies and their executives for such things as price fixing, insurance fraud, options backdating, antitrust violations, race and sex discrimination, sexual harassment, racism and #MeToo matters. We have a significant mergers and acquisitions and corporate governance practice and have done extensive work combatting short sellers and dealing with data breaches. Other issues include sensitive environmental matters, racketeering cases, family disputes, and high-profile divorces. And, we have helped launch companies both from scratch and through IPOs and SPACs.
