Diary: Two renaissances cause confusion

A call from PRWeek to local government PR specialist Renaissance (full name Renaissance Partners in Communication), led us to the leisure and consumer specialist Renaissance PR.

Just as we prepared to apologise and hang up, a new joiner at the agency told us there is currently a 'legal wrangle' over the outfits' similar names.

The local government specialist agency wasn't aware of any proceedings.

Director John Walker tells us: 'They set up after us and may have benefited from our reputation - but their lawyers have not had much success in contacting us.'

Eventually, the leisure and consumer version U-turned on its earlier claim and assured us all is well.

Happy days.
