Leidar sets up offices in Washington and New York
Today we are announcing Leidar USA with offices in Washington and New York.
With this expansion, Leidar is located in the most important capitals of influence and business around the world. We will be one of the few companies in the world that can offer boutique style consulting with a true global perspective.
Leidar USA is comprised of former staffers from LEVICK Strategic Communications, for 25 years one of the leading corporate reputation and crisis management firms in the world. Leidar and LEVICK have partnered for many years and the staff members of the respective firms have worked together closely on clients and projects.
In the past year Leidar and LEVICK have been exploring a more formal relationship. Sadly, with Richard Levick’s passing this would not become possible. It was Richard Levick’s wish that team members would have a continued opportunity with Leidar. With the closure of LEVICK at the end of last month, we are excited that the entire LEVICK team has joined Leidar USA.
LEVICK will continue administratively for a period of time to ensure an orderly closure of the firm.
Leidar USA launches with a seasoned and experienced team. We are serving clients with an expanded global offering and a complete set of solutions in corporate reputation, crisis readiness and response, financial communications, and public affairs.
Our Leidar signature is “Leadership Navigation” and we deliver value for our clients through collaborative and high quality counsel and programs to address risk, manage and build reputations, and advocate for public policy change. Today marks the beginning of a bright new opportunity for Leidar staff worldwide, and for our clients, partners and friends. Leidar USA will carry on the extraordinary legacy of Richard Levick as we build our brand and our business.
