Jamie Diaferia

Jamie Diaferia counsels leading professional services firms on their media, litigation and crisis communications strategies. His clients include Am Law 100 law firms and accounting, financial services and consulting firms, as well as individuals and corporations involved in high-stakes crises and legal battles. During the course of Jamie's two-decade career he has worked behind the scenes of many of the biggest stories in the news, including Enron’s collapse, the Penn State scandal and multiple high-profile civil and criminal prosecutions. He has twice been named one of Lawdragon's 100 Leading Legal Consultants and Strategists and is among PR News' 50 Game-Changers of PR. Jamie is the founder of Infinite Global’s predecessor firm, Infinite PR.

Jamie’s background as both a lawyer and journalist adds depth to every engagement. His clients benefit from the perspective, insight and strategic counsel that come from experiences with dozens of professional services firms. Decision-makers hire Jamie because he understands the nuances and sensitivities involved in the representation of these knowledge-intensive businesses.

A veteran crisis counselor, Jamie helps mitigate negative exposure, and when possible he keeps his clients out of the news. Conversely, his extensive plaintiff-side experience provides law firms and their clients with support for their most significant cases.

Jamie is a graduate of The Taft School, Bucknell University and the University of Connecticut School of Law, where he earned his JD. He is admitted to the Connecticut bar.
