About Us

We are an international alliance of specialist PR firms who are experts in crisis and litigation communications counsel in our respective jurisdictions.

We come together when it makes strategic sense to collaborate on cross-border matters and when clients seek the reassurance of excellent and expert partners overseas.

What we do

We support clients and their legal teams with communications strategies during highly charged, high-profile, dynamic scenarios.

Our member firms share:


  • A professional specialisation and proven track record in crisis and litigation communications
  • A commitment to the principle that clients benefit from senior practitioners’ hands-on involvement in client work
  • An ability to assess the interests and needs of all stakeholders to deliver effective and efficient communications
  • A preference for affiliation with other independently owned ‘local champions’ as the best framework for delivering results overseas.


Our aim is simple: regardless of its locale, when a crisis occurs or conflicting interests develop, CLCA clients will benefit from the know-how of our individual member firms acting together to provide seamless and timely communications counsel in times of difficulty or dispute.
