Winston Calvert’s clients range from elected officials and publicly-traded companies to individuals, small churches, and non-profits. Winston and the clients he counsels make headlines for winning groundbreaking battles and thriving despite public scrutiny.
Since starting his own public relations firm, Calvert has played critical roles in several of the breaking news stories in St. Louis. He has generated helpful media coverage for clients including community groups, law firms, elected officials, and political candidates.
Calvert formed his own firm after serving a term as City Counselor of the City of St. Louis. As City Counselor, Calvert played key roles in the public communications strategies in the debates of same-sex marriage, minimum wage, Ferguson, public safety, Uber, and other similarly high-profile issues. At the end of Calvert’s time in City Hall, Mayor Slay tweeted, “Credit Winston Calvert . . . with giving us the support we need to do new, progressive things.”
Before public office, Calvert managed the media relations and public messaging for law clients at Armstrong Teasdale LLP, a large law firm based in St. Louis. His clients included St. Stanislaus Parish, a Catholic church which Calvert represented in resolving its contentious, 125-year-long property dispute with the Archdiocese of St. Louis and the Vatican. Other significant representations receiving with a high public profile included representing a publicly-traded company in the negotiations and purchase of an asset valued at $100 billion.
