Continuing down the list of the most influential PR firms in the world, we find Qorvis Communications, ranked 6th in terms of fees in 2007. Qurvis is an interesting company on many levels. Over $30 million in fees for a company with only 86 employees in fascinating in itself, but being an entity without an imminently apparent leader is as well. As far as corporate websites go, the Qorvis on is a shambles compared to some of those of competitors.

Marina Maher Communications To celebrate 25 years in business, Marina Maher Communications (MMC) re-launched today its website with a new design, more fit to represent the company in a highly competitive online world.
