Complex Litigation

Complex litigation and other litigation tribunals are no place for the unskilled. We know the law, we know the courtrooms, and we use our legal experience to coordinate legal and communications strategies. This coordinated, synchronized approach ensures that legal and reputational interests are advanced together and are never at odds with each other.

Competition can be fierce, but when a competitor to one of our clients was making false claims about its product in the marketplace, they called Rotenberg Associates, Minneapolis and Baltimore, for help. We devised a strategic response to put pressure on the competitor to stop its false advertising claims, which included scientific testing, trade and mainstream media relations, customer communication and an action brought in the National Advertising Division (of the Better Business Bureau).
