Among writers and communications strategists who address contemporary patent issues in a thoughtful and balanced manner, David is in a class by himself, standing above the rest. He has no peer in terms of the quality and timeliness of his work product, which is one reason he has been sought out by luminaries and thought leaders. He adds significant value by virtue of his insightful intelligence combined with practical experience, which he applies assiduously, both to understanding the issues at stake, as well as to advocating his client’s views in as optimal a fashion as possible. And on a personal level, he is simply a great pleasure to work with.

David Kline doesn’t really work on ‘average’ projects and doesn’t get ‘average’ results. He tends to work on big ideas and important agendas, and to communicate them very thoroughly and effectively through sophisticated arguments in books, op-eds, speeches, media outreach, strategic conceptualizing of arguments, etc. He really ‘gets’ what the client wants to say, and then hones the argument over time in a very persistent and strategic way.

David Kline combines insights into how best to reach the public with superb writing skills that drive your message home to your chosen audience. You cannot find a better communications and PR strategist, for no one else has his range of experiences: investigative journalism, article and book writing, research, public relations, and commercial messaging. A serious student of American history and society, he is at once a deep thinker and a practical person. That is the combination that makes him so unusual — and so useful to emerging thought leaders.

David Kline is one of the best policy communicators I have worked with. He is able to digest complex policy issues, grasp them quickly, and then construct compelling narratives to explain them to policymakers. His ability to translate intricate business and public policy issues into compelling written material is uncanny. I’ve seen policymakers who couldn’t be bothered with an issue one day embrace it the next because Kline was able to reframe it in a more relevant and interesting way. His intellectual curiosity and desire to ‘get it right’ forces those he works with to dig deeper to identify more convincing evidence to support the policies being advocated.

Partner, ACG Consultants | Former Chief Counsel, U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee

We engaged David to help us market our business, and he helped us think through the communications strategy and then executed it. The results were exceptional. One article he wrote led to the single largest consulting contract in our practice. It was so large and lucrative that we had to cut back other projects to deliver the contracted services over the next two years. I have maintained contact with David and will engage him again to develop and execute a marketing strategy for a new company we are launching. In short, I can recommend David without reservation. He produces.

Managing Director | Commercial Strategy, LLC

When David Kline was first recommended to me, I was hesitant because I had just paid out a great deal of money to a nationally-recognized PR firm that got nothing for us. But I took the risk, and it has been a great success. In the last few months alone, David has gotten press coverage for our company in Bloomberg View, Forbes Leadership Blog, Chief Executive Magazine, and Fox Business TV. He has a tremendous ability to quickly grasp complex issues and figure out how to present them. His writing talent and ability to reach and influence both the business community and the media is amazing.
