London, UK, 7 February 2024 – Prosek Partners, a leading integrated marketing and communications firm for financial and professional services, announced today that it has relocated to a new office space in Covent Garden to support its growth, having doubled in team size and client revenue. The office, located at 14 Upper St. Martin’s Lane in Covent Garden, places the firm in one of London’s most dynamic neighbourhoods, and firmly between the most active finance hubs in the city.
The firm, which was named Global Financial Agency of the Year by PRovoke in 2023 and ranked #4 for M&A globally by Mergermarket and #1 for private equity deals by The Deal, is one of the largest financial specialist marketing and communications agencies globally. The firm’s London team has been named Best European PR & Communications Firm by Private Equity Wire and Hedgeweek six times, and recognised by the Hedgeweek & Private Equity Wire European Credit Awards 2023 in the inaugural Best PR & Communications Firm category.

Now, Prosek is a leading integrated marketing, communications and special situations firms globally, with one of the largest financial services specialist teams in London,” said Jennifer Prosek, Founder and Managing Partner. "Our ability to serve clients on both sides of the pond is a key driver behind our agency’s success and differentiation. Our more than 40-person-strong London team has some of the most strategic and entrepreneurial minds in the industry, and I’m excited for our continued growth.”
