We recognize that organizations operate in diverse sectors and often face common challenges – and we understand how to tailor and leverage the solutions that are right for them. Our team is widely experienced across a broad range of industry sectors.
Aerospace & Defense
Given our Washington presence, we have worked with public and private aerospace and defense companies of all sizes and across a range of issues. From crisis matters to M&A – and subsequent antitrust approval – to positive corporate reputation development and deployment, our team has a strong depth of experience in this multi-billion dollar sector.
Banking & Financial Services
Our team brings together a comprehensive understanding of the financial industry and the capital markets – and relationships with the media who cover them. We put our combined experience as senior corporate communicators and investor relations officers, regulators, and market experts to work to help our clients articulate value, drive positive reputations, and navigate the increasingly complex stakeholder, activist, and policy landscape. Often, we partner with outside legal and government affairs counsel, especially in matters of securities and tax litigation and enforcement.
In the consumer, food, and retail markets, we help positon our clients to grow their market share, valuation, and – most important – brand connection. And we drive programs to engage the right stakeholders to help launch new products, determine trade and standards issues, manage labor disputes, and articulate health and nutrition benefits. We are adept at successfully managing consumer-facing crises and product recalls, including those that involve children’s health issues.
Cyber Breach & Data Theft
Collectively, our team has successfully counseled hundreds of companies through the full array of cyber-related crisis issues. From after-the-fact cyber-breach response, to careful enterprise-wide crisis scenario planning, to in-person preparatory simulations, we understand the unique atmosphere in which such communications take place. Coupled with our familiarity of the criteria for public company disclosures, we recognize the impact that a cyber incident can have on a company’s customers, stock price, employees, and industry peers – and how best to minimize negative fallout and accelerate reputational recovery.
Our team understands – and has spent years – working with clients across the energy industry. We recognize the dynamics of today’s energy and clean technology marketplace and what it takes to define value and stand out. We work with every stakeholder from grassroots activists to federal and state regulators to drive positive results for our clients. We have created multi-year, award-winning reputation campaigns for leading energy brands, helped site numerous industrial facilities, and represented companies involved in the gravest of crisis situations, including the Deepwater Horizon and other major accidents.
Health Care & Medical Devices
We marry our industry understanding – having worked with clients ranging from private start-up disruptors to leading health care providers to PBMs and other payers to major hospital systems – with our regulatory and legislative relationships to deliver insights and programs for clients that resonate and advance their business and policy objectives.
