Baretz+Brunelle launches a talent intelligence & analytics practice. Among the new practice’s offerings are bespoke marketing & communications efforts to re-brand laterals, transition full books of business and address growth and success; onboarding support, including client integration, internal communications and business development/cross-selling planning; and metrics-based assessment reports to maximize client development opportunities. The practice will be led by Howard Rosenberg, the co-founder of Decipher, a global investigative intelligence business, who will join the firm as a partner. “Law firms’ main assets are the individuals who walk in and out each day,” said Rosenberg. “I see a huge unserved need to assist law firms in identifying, onboarding, integrating, and growing the businesses of the right individuals.”


Onclusive, which was formed in January with the acquisition and merger by Symphony Technology Group of Kantar’s Reputation Intelligence business, PRgloo and the legacy Onclusive, picks up US-based media monitoring platform Critical Mention. The company says the move enhances its global footprint and ability to offer US broadcast monitoring and media contacts capabilities to clients worldwide. All of Critical Mention’s team, which is predominantly located in offices in New York and India, is set to remain with the company. Critical Mention’s existing clients can still access their products and services as usual and will soon have access to the wider Onclusive offer.
