Clients love us
Working with the lang cat on our strategic communications has been a real pleasure. ‘Rarely do you get a communications consultancy in our sector that just gets it’ – where you don’t have to spend an age explaining the detail or the context – because their depth of understanding of our market is second to none.
Head of Marketing
‘The lang cat – the world’s most effective public relations firm. No hyperbole. We tried others. They didn’t understand us. So they didn’t know how to pitch. We got no value for money. Now we do. We’re on a roll. We recommend the lang cat. Silly name. Happily.’

“The lang cat PR team has an uncanny knack for turning the complex into something really engaging. Their grasp of the issues and ability to act as a sounding board is second to none in our experience, they simply get it. The added bonus is that dealing with the guys on a day-to-day basis is an absolute pleasure!”
“Since, appointing the lang cat as our PR agency they have been like an extension of our team, showing the same level of commitment, engagement and passion as Panacea staff. They fully understand our proposition, are proactive and ensure our message is delivered to the right people in the relevant publications. In addition they, recommend new and useful ways of engaging with the Panacea community which has proven to be extremely useful.”
Editors love us too
Trade Press Publication
‘When the lang cat PR came onto the scene it was like a breath of fresh air for the industry. I’d known the senior members there for a long time, of course, so I was not surprised to see how quickly they shook up the industry, providing in-depth research, interesting and engaging content and proactive commentary about the issues that matter most to our readers.’
News editor from a top trade mag
‘I’ve known the senior team at the lang cat longer than I ‘or they for that matter’ would care to admit. They don’t rely solely on PR professionals, but have industry specialists on the team who are experts in their field, so they really know their onions. They know their clients very well and also produce research which is not only interesting with something to say, but which I can trust to be true. All in all, they offer a degree of strength and depth that isn’t generally present in the average PR firm.”
Top personal finance freelancer
Generally, we find PRs to be friendly, helpful and prompt. But that’s their job isn’t it? Doing one’s job isn’t deserving of praise. The lang cat is the only agency I know that looks to work with journalists on projects seeking to produce new and enlightening content. Who else does that? While others send us press releases pushing people or products, we’re on the phone to the lang cat discussing whether we can make risk-profiler Top Trumps. It’s different, it’s exciting and, as an editor, it’s what I want. Some achievement.’
Editor of another leading trade
‘It is not hard to stand out among the sea of bland, company-approved, management speak that typically passes for industry comment but the lang cat remains unique. It has an unparalleled knowledge of an industry that often takes itself too seriously and not only provides detailed and deep analysis, but does so with approachability and humour.’
Head honcho of a leading trade publication
‘The lang cat’s specialisation makes them much better informed than most PR firms and therefore much more useful to journalists. They are also quick to respond and always keen to help.’
PF editor of a major national newspaper
‘The lang cat has risen quickly and impressively to become a highly-respected communications and PR business. It is set apart from its peers by the expertise of its spokespeople, its understanding of UK financial services and its unique research and analysis.’
