Crisis Communications & Management

Over the years we have been involved in some of the most highly visible crisis communications and management projects in Southern California. We often work closely with law firms when their clients are involved in highly-charged litigation that attracts media attention. We have provided crisis communications counsel for large corporations, nonprofit institutions, public entities, grassroots community groups and celebrities. Some of our crisis management efforts have involved the FBI, Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, the LAPD and Homeland Security.

Crises strike almost always without notice. That is why being prepared for any eventuality is key to managing a crisis when it hits. Our experience has taught us to think and look ahead to what situations may occur and develop a plan of action should the scenario come about.

Our crisis management services include analyzing the situation, anticipating media questions, creating credible answers, rehearsing media interviews, negotiating media interviews, strategies to revive a person’s or organization’s reputation and a plan to assure the situation doesn’t repeat itself.

Our philosophy is the best crisis communications plan is one that never needs to be used.
