Sitrick And Company has consistently been ranked among the nation’s top strategic communications firms. Founded in 1989 by Michael S. Sitrick, Chairman and CEO, the firm has clients from the public and private sector as well as high-profile individuals ranging from financier Thomas H. Lee to rocker Tommy Lee.
Sitrick And Company has five offices: Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Washington DC.
Although the firm has extensive experience in corporate, financial, transactional and crisis communications, it is best known for its work in sensitive, make-or-break situations. Whether helping a client with reputation management, a merger, litigation issues, a restructuring or a criminal indictment, Sitrick And Company works to ensure that clients’ objectives are achieved and its key constituents receive the appropriate communications. These include employees, the investment community, customers, suppliers and government officials.
Matters with which the firm has been involved span the spectrum. They include business litigation, state and federal government investigations, data breach issues, criminal indictments, insurance fraud, labor issues (including emergency executive transitions, sexual harassment and discrimination cases), fraudulent conveyance cases, trade disputes, mergers and acquisitions, proxy contests, withhold vote contests, product recalls, environmental issues and product liability claims, financial restatements and write-downs, and in and out of court restructurings. The firm has been involved in more than 400 Chapter 11 cases since its founding and roughly 100 out of court restructurings.
Sitrick And Company executives are broadly experienced professionals from the media and corporate worlds. Senior executives have served as officers and directors of both private and publicly-traded companies, as former litigators and as reporters, editors and producers at such news organizations as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, San Jose Mercury News, Detroit Free Press, Chicago Tribune, Bloomberg, Dow Jones, Miami Herald, NBC Television, the China Morning News and various Latin American media.
The firm’s digital media team is led by an executive who directed online initiatives for Premiere Radio, one of the nation’s top syndicators of radio programs. The team has orchestrated such high-profile campaigns as the withhold vote effort launched by Roy Disney against Michael Eisner, then the head of the Walt Disney Company, and the defense of Patricia Dunn, former chair of HP, who was indicted for allegedly spying on her board.
The firm has been involved in developing and implementing strategic communications programs for more than 1,000 companies, individuals and entities over the past 25 years.
