About Us

ABOUT US

Blue Highway Advisory is a one-of-a-kind boutique services firm with bases in the U.S. and U.K.

 

We specialize in providing unmatched Tier One media plans and access; multi-level, cross-community advocacy; and structural and senior-level strategic counsel for high-stakes litigation and crisis matters.

 

Our expertise lies in the following distinct categories:

 

Creators' rights: We have a proven track record in offering litigation and public affairs support, legal referrals, reputation enhancement and recovery, and hard-nosed mass media campaigns to assist composers, recording artists, filmmakers, visual artists, and writers/authors who have been aggrieved, short-changed, un- or under-compensated, or have had any other sort of contractual arrangement negated, ignored or violated.

 

Litigation communications support: We provide comprehensive assistance for civil and criminal cases, particularly those progressing through the US Federal system in DC, Northern Virginia, New York, and Los Angeles, as well as more contained, localized matters. Additionally, we deftly handle communications and strategic support for cross-Atlantic prosecutorial referrals to the U.S. from the U.K, and vice-versa.

 

The ‘NewSpace’ sector: We serve the global NewSpace industry, offering senior-level strategic, structural and media services to a rapidly expanding field that requires deep knowledge of defense, intelligence and government civilian space functions.

 

Whistleblower media support and legal referral services: We devise media plans and connect government and industry whistleblowers with appropriate legal resources.

 

Media advisory counsel for the legal sector: We offer counsel and guidance to select legal professionals and law firms regarding media and other vital communications-related matters.

Our founder and principal, Ian Christopher McCaleb, is a sought-after media strategist, multiple award-wining strategic counselor and litigation communications and support specialist.

 

He has held senior editorial positions at renowned media organizations such as CNN and the Fox News Channel, as well as with a long-revered international news agency and a national newspaper chain. His beats as a reporter and correspondent included the Federal Justice system and Federal law enforcement, the Federal Court system, the U.S. military and intelligence services, foreign military conflicts, the U.S. Congress and multiple U.S. presidential elections.

 

He has worked as a senior strategist and practice chair at two major consulting firms, and at a Top 10 international law firm.

 

Further, he has extensive experience as a senior US government spokesman (Department of Justice, Criminal Division), intelligence community civilian operative…

 

…AND as a longtime music critic and writer, and musician.

 

Blue Highway Advisory marries his life's work in media, law and government with his greatest passions, the worlds of music, art, the printed word and cinema, to create an expanding agency that will form a formidable, protective shield for the rights of creators and artists. The work includes the most closed-fisted, relentless sort of media campaigns often devised for high-power corporate or government entities, but here applied to wide communities of aggrieved of undercompensated creators.

 

Mr. McCaleb planned and administered a comprehensive North American media campaign in relation to lengthy US Federal litigation over a beloved cult music motion picture, which played a key, concurrent role in all rights being returned to the control of the original creators.

 

Similarly, in 2023, he planned and executed an unremitting top-tier media campaign for a one-time hip hop luminary facing Federal trial on a variety of charges of unusual complexity. The campaign included the cover story in an international weekly business magazine, a full profile published by a long-influential music and culture monthly, drive-time scene-setters via a national radio network, a trial table-setter via a national business daily newspaper, and more prized placements and positive press throughout the trial process.

 

His sector work for clients has ranged from law, to tech, to heavy industry, healthcare, the international space industry and space law, defense, high net-worth individuals, musicians, artists, filmmakers, philanthropists and charities.
