Fleishman-Hillard tackles Los Angeles issue…

For the past while Fleishman-Hillard has been fighting allegations over their dealings with the city of Los Angeles, mostly behind closed doors.

On Wednesday, Richard S. Kline, regional president of Fleishman-Hillard wrote a formal response to these allegations in the Los Angeles Daily News.

“In the 58-year history of Fleishman-Hillard, we have never experienced allegations remotely like those facing us today in Los Angeles…….Fleishman-Hillard is a firm of high ethical standards. We would never knowingly tolerate improper behavior and we will not attempt to avoid our responsibilities in this case. But the DWP had good reasons to seek experienced outside counsel and our firm provided a great deal of value in the six years we worked for the department.”
