PRCG and its founder, James F. Haggerty, have been repeatedly ranked by Chambers and Partners, the prestigious international directory, as among the top public relations firms in the United States. Chambers has called Haggerty a “powerhouse” who “thinks on a different level,” bringing a “double barrel of legal and media experience” to his work. In 2017, PR News named Haggerty one of “50 Game Changers” of public relations for his work as a “trailblazer” in litigation communications. Major media have also lauded PRCG | Haggerty for providing “sophisticated,” “round-the-clock” global services to clients in crisis and litigation matters.

Considered the definitive guide to communicating during litigation and other legal matters, In the Court of Public Edition was first published in 2003 to rave reviews—including in the Financial Times, which called the book “the perfect handbook for this age.” 2023 will see the publication of a 20th anniversary edition of In the Court of Public Opinion, with new information, strategies, and case histories for a brave new world of litigation communications.
Chief Crisis Officer: Structure and Leadership for Effective Communications Response has just been released in a new Hart + Harvest paperback edition, with a provocative new preface covering the communications response to the COVID-19 crisis and Russia’s 2022 invasion of Ukraine.
