It is difficult for any enterprise to succeed without being understood. Fish works with senior leadership to solve communication problems that are strategic. We help organizations communicate effectively and be understood by their audiences.

Our clients are global companies, philanthropic causes, cultural and education organizations, economic development efforts, start-ups, incubators, and investor-owners.

We are based in the northeastern United States. We take on a limited number of engagements, each of which receives the ongoing personal attention of all of our principals. We collaborate with a network of long-standing partners to adapt our capacity to individual client needs.


clients engage us when:

  • launching a new division, product, or service
  • changing their existing product or service
  • trying to reach an untapped audience
  • preparing to grow and reach new audiences
  • anticipating new competition for the attention of existing audiences
  • resolving discrepancies between their actions and the way they’re perceived
  • diagnosing problems with existing communication programs


we deliver:

  • names
  • visual identities
  • core messaging
  • brand architecture
  • communication strategies
  • communication tactics (print materials, websites, press materials, spoken and written presentations, etc.)
  • audits of existing communication programs (and on their basis, recommendations for change)


Fish Partners are great to work with. They deliver a rare combination of broad experience, methodology, integrity and creative thinking that I have found to be indispensable.

donald k. "obie" clifford
former director, mckinsey & co.

Fish is a one of a kind, different in kind firm. They operate at the nexus of extreme creativity and intelligence. They are a remarkable source of original thinking and ideas. I’ve worked with them extensively and realized wonderful results.

justin b. smith
ceo, bloomberg media group

Their approach, thinking, and imagination all work in concert to create solutions that hit the mark. I find they consistently deliver breakthrough, brilliant ideas that are highly executable from a team that is easy to do business with.

charlie frenette
former executive vp & worldwide cmo, the coca-cola company

Fish is completely distinct. They are not only smart and knowledgeable about many things in their own right; they’re intellectually curious in a way that brings new ideas to a project and a point of view that is informed. This is a very creative group of people, and what’s rarer is their ability to marry that creativity with a pragmatic, results-oriented understanding of clients’ strategy. They are selective about the projects they work on, and when they take something on, they invest in understanding the people, ideas, and KPIs that animate their clients’ business. All of this produces differentiated results.

jay lauf
president & publisher, quartz

Fish builds a keen understanding of the client’s business and directly targets their needs. The work is tasteful, strategic and break-through creative.
