Butler Associates is a boutique and full-service strategic communications firm with an established reputation for its effective PR strategies and maintaining long-term relationships with its clients, including some that have flourished for more than two decades.


Hiring a public relations agency can help improve a company, individual or entity's brand reputation, gain media coverage, manage crisis communications, outweigh competitors, increase return on investment, and optimize marketing strategies — but finding the best firm for your needs is critical to this success. Here’s what sets us apart:


OUR CLIENTS GET LASTING RESULTS. We are strategic, results-oriented communicators who have led campaigns that have resulted in major legislative and policy changes, spotlighted high-profile litigation that has been elevated to the U.S. Supreme Court, won 8 proxy battles against a Fortune 50 company, gained approval for major real estate developments through New York City’s complex land use approval process, improved public safety and safety for New York City first responders, prevented FDNY firehouse closures, and much more.


The bottom line: we are passionate about helping our clients make a lasting impact and achieve their goals, both short- and long-term.


YOU'VE READ ABOUT OUR CLIENTS IN THE NEWS. Butler has established meaningful, long-term relationships with award-winning reporters, news publications, and editorial boards. That means when our clients have important or breaking news, our team is a trusted, credible source with direct access to some of the nation’s top journalists, news personalities, and editors. Since journalists sift through hundreds of pitches and news stories daily, these personal relationships can make all the difference.


Our clients have been featured in top print and online publications, including The New York Times, USA Today, New York Daily News, New York Post, Crain’s New York Business, Commercial Observer, The Washington Post, Politico, and HuffPost, as well as gained significant T.V. coverage on Fox Business News, CNBC-TV, CBS-TV and CBS Radio, ABC News, NY1, Fox 5 New York, PIX11, and more.


AS A BOUTIQUE FIRM, WE'RE EASILY ACCESSIBLE AND WELL INFORMED. Our team members become experts on our clients’ issues, taking time to research and evaluate their industries and top priorities. This is critical to having fruitful conversations with reporters and establishing credibility on behalf of our clients. All of our team members stay informed about each of our clients, whom we are in daily communication with. We make ourselves easily accessible and are always just a phone call or email away. That means faster responses from a knowledgeable team, increased productivity, and ongoing results.


WE DON'T NICKEL AND DIME. Hourly and project-based billing can get convoluted and pricey. We simplify the pricing structure by keeping our clients on a PR retainer. That keeps billing and budgeting stable and predictable for both parties.


WE ONLY REPRESENT CLIENTS WHEN WE ARE A PHENOMENAL FIT. We receive numerous requests for PR representation but seek to closely align our team's skillsets with those seeking our services. We prioritize quality over quantity, and work to ensure we are a great match for a client with the past experience and successes to prove it. That way, it’s a win-win for all.


PR results "speak for themselves"
As any CEO or business leader knows, results and reputation always impact the bottom line. At Butler Associates, our reputation and results have won some rather lofty communications industry accolades.

When your industry peers and competitors acknowledge your results, it speaks volumes, so we don’t have to!
