2011 Legal PR Awards: Holland & Knight Takes Media Coverage Honor


Winner: Holland & Knight - Spotlight Shines on Holland & Knight’s Kathryn Lehman Following 2010 Midterm Elections

As the 2010 midterm elections drew near and expectations of a Republican rout were rampant, Holland & Knight knew it was time to put partner Kathryn Lehman in the spotlight. A 15-year veteran of Capitol Hill before landing at H&K, Lehman has worked closely House and Senate leadership—many of them Republicans. She would be the firm’s top Republican, showing potential clients that H&K had access to the decision makers on the Hill. But there was one concern: Lehman was inexperienced with the media. Aimee Steel, PR manager at Holland & Knight, sprang into action, facilitating media training for Lehman—including how to properly conduct an interview, how to avoid saying too much and how to package herself as an interesting source. The training yielded great results, as Lehman appeared in outlets like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post and other top tiers. Lehman is now a go-to figure for political reporters in Washington, and she doesn’t shy away from the media—she craves it.
