We develop, refine and execute strategic corporate media relations programs, from a Series A private company hoping to raise its profile to an industry titan dealing with an unexpected challenge.
We build and enhance messaging to Wall Street by getting to know our clients and ensuring that their organization's most important themes break through the noise of the markets. 
We partner with companies to plan and launch successful transaction announcements and hostile offense/defense campaigns. We have supported some of the most high profile and memorable situations of the last 20 years. 
We bring unique insight and evolving perspective to shareholder activism defense, beginning with scenario planning and preparation and continuing all the way through a vote. 
We leverage data and digital tools to help clients better target and communicate with stakeholders who are consuming news and information in novel ways.
We provide practical advice and a steady demeanor when the stakes are the highest to deliver counsel and communications that support the best possible outcome.
