How can PR help in litigation between companies?
The answers are several: make life difficult for the other side, make it clear that litigation has become more expensive and the outcome is not certain, create the right pressure to resolve the conflict.

Good PR can help a company maintain its reputation and gain the trust and sympathy of the public.
