Taking the fight outside of the courtroom.
International legal cases are not won and lost only in the courtroom: the arguments are also played out in the media. And the court of public opinion has often delivered its own verdict long before a judge ever does.
High profile and precedent-setting cases can be directly influenced by a press campaign supporting one side and their legal team.
We shape perceptions and the narrative driving their coverage in the media.
BTP Advisers has led international media relations for legal cases before the International Criminal Court, and other United Nations-sponsored international tribunals at the Hague. We have represented clients in cases from human rights, war crimes, multi-country class actions, and capital punishment cases - to extradition proceedings, missing persons, incommunicado detention, and defamation.
Working hand in hand with counsel to ensure the integration of all media and legal efforts, we appreciate that politics and the law are interlinked – and how empowering our clients to navigate these multiple hurdles can be critical to winning their case.
