Today’s news cycle is measured in seconds (on a slow day), and the court of public opinion doesn’t wait to pass judgment. We understand that when a crisis hits, minutes are money. That’s why we strategically manage your message and frame the debate.

5W Public Relations (5W) specializes in highly strategic issues and crisis management for companies or individuals facing unanticipated difficulties in the marketplace – from rumors to recalls - responding within minutes on crisis PR issues. We understand why a crisis is called a “defining moment” – and for this reason, our speed is tempered by an analysis of every possible scenario prior to taking action.

We’ve handled a broad spectrum of issues: IPO's, business and personal litigation, product recalls, trade disputes, environmental problems, warranty and product liability claims, sexual harassment and sexual discrimination cases, labor issues, criminal indictments and a variety of sensitive domestic and international political issues. Our reputation for combining cutting edge strategy with a rapid-fire, aggressive approach helps us achieve the results our clients desire - whether accurate press coverage, or none at all.
