NEW YORK, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dukas Linden Public Relations (DLPR) today announced its expansion into Continental Europe, the U.K. and Asia through the establishment of an exclusive, strategic partnership agreement with MHP Communications (MHP)—one of the U.K.'s ten largest PR agencies, with offices in London, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney.
Under the terms of the agreement, MHP will act as DLPR's exclusive partner in Europe and Asia, and DLPR will act as MHP's exclusive partner in the U.S. for financial and professional services PR. Together, the two agencies will jointly provide fully integrated PR and communications services to asset management and financial firms across the globe—from Hong Kong to Los Angeles.
"Today marks an important milestone in our 13-year history," said Richard Dukas, Chairman and CEO of DLPR. "Our partnership with MHP will enable clients to work with us globally, and receive the same professional quality service in Asia and Europe as they do in the US. The partnership also will enable DLPR to continue to grow, diversify our client base and expand the depth and breadth of our service offerings."
Seth Linden, DLPR's president, added, "Our partnership with MHP is a result of months of intensive discussions, well before Brexit was significantly on anyone's radar. That being said, in the post-Brexit environment our value proposition is more compelling than ever. US companies need communications professionals 'on the ground' in Europe and Asia who have their finger on the pulse of the rapidly changing business environment while European and UK-based companies, especially, will likely look to the US market, more than ever, as an engine of growth and opportunity."
With a combined staff of 195 communications professionals, the two firms will be capable of providing a broad range of advice and support to clients in the financial, financial services and professional services sectors, including asset management, pensions, insurance, banking and consumer finance and capital markets, M&A and transaction advice for listed companies in all sectors. The two firms' financial services clients have aggregate assets under management or advice totalling $4 trillion.
