Hill + Knowlton Strategies has launched the Corporate Advisory Group, a division focused on reputation and public risk at the highest levels of business. The group will be led by H+K’s global chairman and CEO Jack Martin and London-based global vice chair of the corporate practice, Andrew Laurence.

Just last week, the firm announced that it had launched a research division and merged with a firm in Russia, expanding its reach in the region. The firm is also dealing with a possible court case involving Weber Shandwick.
