NEW YORK (April 15, 2020) — LHA, an investor relations agency with offices in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, and RooneyPartners (RP), a New York-based communications agency, today announced a new partnership to provide integrated investor relations and public relations programs to existing and prospective healthcare clients. With over 50 years of combined operations, LHA and RP provide clients with unparalleled access to healthcare investment-community professionals, as well as to top-tier business journalists and influential trade publications. The need to stay visible with distinct and coordinated communications takes on new urgency in times of uncertainty, and is essential to the continued interest and support of all stakeholders. This new integrated offering will help clients create a compelling narrative and gain unparalleled access to audiences that help them achieve their business goals.
“The combined best practices of our two firms offers clients and prospective clients an impactful and cost-effective offering,” said Keith L. Lippert, Founding Partner of LHA. “Our thorough understanding of each client’s business and anticipated milestones provides the basis to craft an investment thesis and integrated story that is consistently directed to the right audience to achieve the client’s investor relations and corporate communications goals. Relationships matter, and over the past three and a half decades, LHA has developed an extensive network of investor contacts to provide unprecedented access and results to our integrated clients.”

During that time we have informally partnered to offer integrated IR and PR services to more than 20 clients in the U.S. and Europe.”
