About us

Kohl PR is a leading German communications consultancy with particular expertise in sensitive and potentially volatile socio-political issues.

The agency has been owner-operated since its foundation in 1984, and provides support to both national and international clients hailing from Asia, France, the Netherlands, the USA, Poland and Italy. We particularly focus on consumer protection, nutrition, health, the environment, agriculture, trade, construction, sustainability, community and social affairs. To help achieve its aims, the agency has access to established networks in the media, in politics, with organisations, in the sciences and with associations.

As one of the few owner-operated communications agencies, Kohl PR & Partner offers public relations, stakeholder management, public affairs and crisis communication services from a single provider. We belong to the GPRA, an association formed of leading German PR agencies.

Since 2015, Kohl PR & Partner has been a member of the independent international SEC Group with partner agencies in Italy, Brussels, Poland, the United Kingdom and Spain. We have been a member of the Crisis Management Network (CMN) for many years, in which capacity we work with some of the best-known agencies in Europe and further afield.

In the heart of Berlin on Leipziger Platz

Kohl PR & Partner was founded in Bonn. Following the relocation of the Federal Government, the agency opened an office in Berlin and later moved the company’s headquarters to the capital on a permanent basis.

The offices of Kohl PR & Partner are located on Leipziger Platz in the political heart of Berlin, and are thus in the immediate vicinity of political decision-making centres such as the Bundestag, the Bundesrat and the Federal Chancellery, as well as the headquarters of associations, organisations and media companies.
