The Levinson Group makes its debut in Band 1, the top category for crisis PR & communications firms, in this year’s rankings from Chambers.

TLG was in Band 2 last year and Band 3 in the 2021 rankings. (Chambers’ rankings for litigation PR will appear in a separate article.). Founded less than ten years ago by Molly Levinson, TLG is the first woman-founded and women-run firm to be listed in the Band 1 section.

Joining TLG in Band 1 of the Chambers crisis rankings are FGS Global, which was also in Band 1 last year, and Brunswick Group, which returns to the top level from its appearance in Band 2 last year.

The agencies snagging a Band 2 ranking were Reevemark (also Band 2 last year), Trident DMG (Band 2 in 2022 as well) and FTI Consulting (Band 3 last year).

Risa Heller Communications and Edelman placed in Band 3, with Band 4 occupied by August Strategic Communications, Goldin Solutions, Infinite Global, H/Advisors Abernathy, Hennes Communications, KARV Communciations, Kekst CNC and Poston Communications.

TLG’s attention to detail was cited as one reason for their rise to the top level. "The team members really roll up their sleeves and dig into the work,” one agency client told Chambers. “No task is too small, and no challenge is too daunting. They have the strategic chops to lead, but also just do the work."

TLG CEO Levinson ranked in the top tier of individual crisis practitioners, along with Reevemark’s Brandy Bergman, August Strategic Communications’ Ellen Davis, Brunswick Group’s Ellen Moskowitz, FGS Global’s Jeff McAndrews and Paul Holmes, and Risa Heller of Risa Heller Communications.

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