WASHINGTON, D.C., April 3— Phil Goldberg has joined the Washington office of Ketchum as vice president, litigation communications. Goldberg, an attorney, had served as vice president of litigation communications at Powell-Tate/Weber Shandwick, and previously at Bork & Associates.
“The market for litigation communications has never been stronger, and clients are demanding PR counselors with solid experience in the field,” said Karen Doyne, Ketchum senior vice president and director, litigation communications.  “Phil has been on the front lines of some very tough litigation PR battles, and he also brings clients his keen understanding of the intertwining of law, media and public policymaking that drives so many public controversies.”
Goldberg’s earlier positions include communications director for U.S. Reps. Ellen Tauscher (D-Cal.) and Steve Rothman (D-NJ), press aide to then-Rep. Robert Torricelli (D-NJ), and deputy press secretary for the 1993 Presidential Inaugural Parade.
