End for Anderson Soames as last client pulls plug

Technology and financial PR firm Anderson Soames Communications

(ASC) went into liquidation this week.



The agency, founded by joint managing directors Karen Anderson and Tina

Soames, has shut with the loss of all six account-handling jobs.



Anderson blamed the global downturn, and pointed to the loss of the

Thomson Financial account - its last remaining client - as being

decisive.



Anderson is understood to be involved in a legal dispute with former

staff, some of whom claim not to have been paid - a claim Anderson

denied.



Although ASC is out of business, the two principals this week launched a

vehicle for selling their PR services - Blue Sky Public Relations.



Anderson said it would target consumer brands rather than tech and

financial clients.



Leader, p12.
