Litigation PR is steadily gaining in importance in the "courtroom of public opinion", given that legal disputes are increasingly being played out in front of the media, with companies becoming the focus of public interest. In the recently published handbook "Litigation PR – Storytelling, Strategy & Legal Framework" (Bäck-Kapp, Harmer, Renzenbrink (eds.)), the interplay between law and communication is explored by a wide range of experts and underpinned by practical experience.
As antitrust cases have also attracted much more media attention in recent years, CERHA HEMPEL partner Bernhard Kofler-Senoner and associate Philipp Schaubach have co-authored a fascinating contribution on the topic of "antitrust law" in this practice-oriented work, highlighting important aspects that should be taken into account in antitrust proceedings in connection with litigation PR. In addition, the fundamental principles of compliance are highlighted to avoid dawn raids and cartel proceedings as much as possible.
The handbook has been published by LexisNexis. More information can be found here: https://shop.lexisnexis.at/litigation-pr-9783700778134.html
