The family is now looking
to recruit one agency on a global basis and is on the verge of appointing City PR firm WMC Communications.
The Bin Laden Group has reportedly been searching in the US and UK for a PR agency to provide damage limitation for some weeks.
It is understood the group wants to make it widely known that the family has no contact with Osama, whom the family disowned seven years ago.
WMC chairman and founder David Wynne-Morgan confirmed he had held three meetings with the Bin Laden Group.
He said: 'We have checked the company at the highest levels on both sides of the Atlantic and our understanding is that the company has not supported terrorism in any form.
'I think both the US and UK governments would like someone to do a very good
job for the Bin Laden Group because it further isolates Osama,' he added.
It is understood the group is looking for reputation PR in the Middle East, US and UK.
In the US, the Bin Laden Group employs Hullin Metz founder Tim Metz on a basic media relations brief, although speculation suggests his role may extend to reputation PR.
It is believed the group
also approached Manhattan-based PR firm Attention America, led by Steve Goldstein, last month.
