In the course of litigation disputes, it is of paramount importance to interact with the media and public opinion leaders, correct public distortions, and obtain extremely accurate media coverage. Instead of taking hits from opponents, it is necessary to form and develop our independent information agenda.
“More and more public litigation disputes in Russia have been resolved through media coverage. Litigation PR comes to the rescue of plaintiffs and legal experts as the management of the communication processes during the course of any legal dispute or adjudicatory processing, aimed at creating beneficial background information around certain legal positions as well as achieving justice. The probability to obtain an impartial and objective judiciary decision drastically increases if the general public follows litigation proceedings”, – explained Ms. Nina Danilina.
Research on the effectiveness of PR-support of litigation disputes, held in 2020, indicated that over 60% of all plaintiffs and legal experts had already used PR-instruments within litigation disputes. These instruments were considered effective. 78% of all respondents confirmed that PR-support had influenced the outcomes of litigation disputes.
