integrated public relations services

Our team at dovetail solutions is exceptional at providing traditional public relations services. In fact, it’s often our renowned work in these areas that initially brings new clients in the door – it’s simply what you expect from a firm like ours.

But what sets us apart is our melding of each element into a single, congruent solution and centering that around a critical practice too often left out of the mix: Community Partnership.  

Strategic Community Investment

At dovetail solutions, our mission is to help integrate our clients into the communities that matter, and Strategic Community Investment is at the core of that. We help clients understand where opportunities exist in the political and nonprofit worlds, and help them map a strategy that is consistent with their passion and business goals.

Our services range from helping senior executives identify and seek high-profile board opportunities to developing network maps that help executives fully leverage their contacts to executive coaching that allows clients to get the most from themselves and their staffs.

Public Relations and Media Relations

The world of PR/media relations is evolving. The right firm understands how to harness the power of new technology, build long-standing relationships and craft original ideas to tell a client’s story. Getting valuable media exposure is both an art and a science, starting with a focused strategy to develop solid messages that are newsworthy and speak to the people that the client wants to reach.


Former Quaker Oats CEO John Stuart famously said, “If this business were split up, I would give you the land and bricks and mortar, and I would take the brands and trademarks, and I would fare better than you.” Our clients live in that same world, where reputations define winners and losers.

Internal Communications

An organization’s ability to achieve its business goals depends on how well its employees understand and are aligned with the overall vision the goals are designed to achieve. Your employees are your most powerful brand advocates. dovetail solutions works with organizations to ensure employees are well informed and well equipped to successfully fulfill this role.

Crisis Communications

A crisis can strike at any time, without warning.  How an organization responds can mean the difference between success and failure. Sometimes it’s a question of how much damage is done to the brand, but sometimes the crisis is such that it compromises the likelihood of an organization to continue operations.

Social Media

Social media can be a powerful tool to help you connect with the communities you care about, but too many companies jump into it without a strategy or for the wrong reasons. The result is a resounding thud of disappointment when the time and effort fail to translate into meaningful connections.


Public Affairs

Oftentimes, issues that coexist between the private and public sectors are complex and can be threatening for an organization – and just as often there are opportunities to be realized. Public Affairs coordinates complex and challenging issues confronting organizations and businesses, usually from external forces. It is the intersection of public policy, business and government.

Law Communications Practice

Law firms often find themselves between a rock and a hard place with media and communications. Most of the time, lawyers and their clients are hesitant to speak to the press. However, not doing so leaves a vacuum of information that will be filled by someone else. Communication should always be managed and not left to chance. Enter dovetail solutions.
