Byfield’s Russian Desk Launched as Agency Grows CIS Client Base

Byfield Consultancy, the UK’s only PR agency exclusively serving the legal sector, today announces the launch of a dedicated Russia Desk, created to further build its growing CIS client base.

The desk has been established to meet growing demand for litigation PR and reputation management services from the CIS region, proving clients a blend of senior crisis and dispute counsel combined with expert knowledge of both the UK and Russian language media markets.
Headed by Eugenia Verenko, Byfield’s Russian Desk offers clients both expert litigation and crisis PR services for corporates and individuals, as well as corporate profile building within the UK and CIS region for law firms.
Before joining Byfield, Eugenia spent eight years working with leading international PR agencies in Moscow. Her experience includes servicing clients from IT, finance, manufacturing and entertainment sectors, focussing on corporate & crisis PR and international media relations.

Eugenia’s bi-lingual skills and in-depth knowledge of the Russian language media market, coupled with litigation PR experience in the UK brings real added value to Byfield’s international offering.

Eugenia Verenko reports directly to Richard Elsen, Byfield’s Chairman, who is a recognised litigation PR and reputation management specialist with a particular focus on high value international disputes and political campaigns.

Apart from Russia and the CIS Region, Byfield continues to see strong growth in client mandates from Africa and the United States, two geographical areas where demand for its reputation and dispute PR services remains very strong.
