Brunswick Group, Sard Verbinnen & Co. and Trident DMG were named the top PR & communications firms offering litigation support in this year’s rankings from Chambers.

All three were placed in Band 1, the top tier of the rankings, which evaluate firms based on technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence and commitment. They all were in Band 1 last year as well.

Brunswick received kudos for being “particularly good at distilling complex issues into digestible statements useful for customers and others,” SVC was praised for having “a great reputation among the editorial boards of major top-tier media,” and Trident DMG was called “particularly effective in navigating communications strategies adjacent to litigation.”

Ripp Media, Finsbury Glover Hering and FTI Consulting took spots in the Band 2 category. Band 3 includes PRC Haggerty, Reevemark, Sitrick And Company, The Levinson Group, Edelman and Infinite Global.

Lanny Davis of Trident DMG and Sitrick And Company’s Mike Sitrick were named Senior Statespeople in Chambers’ individual rankings.

Ellen Moskowitz of Brunswick Group placed in Band 1, while Ripp Media’s Allan Ripp, SVC’s George Sard and Paul Holmes of FGH were in Band 2.

Chambers ranks firms and individuals from Band 1 to 6 and stresses that being ranked in any of the bands is a “significant achievement.”
