Things don't add up at Fleishman-Hillard

PR agency Fleishman-Hillard admits they overbilled the City of Los Angeles by $4.2 million between 1999-2004. A former F-H vice president will face a trial in August over the matter. All of this comes to light only a few months after the O&M trial, where two agency execs were found guilty of bilking the federal government out of millions of dollars.

According to F-H's Los Angeles GM, the agency takes "'full responsibility for any billing issues,'" and they " have taken steps to ensure the integrity of our billing process.'" Really? Care to share what those steps are? Because the whole industry might need to do the same.
