Nothing can destroy a corporate reputation as quickly and massively as a crisis – with potentially serious and far reaching economic consequences. Targeted communication can play a decisive role in de-escalating crisis situations. At Breidenstein+Krüger we have extensive experience in successfully managing and controlling communications in critical situations, ranging from financial performance, active shareholders, unexpected management changes, product crisis, employee protests and labour disputes to complex capital markets transactions such as debt equity swaps and hostile takeovers.
We help our clients to keep communications channels open at all times during a crisis and respond quickly in a difficult and changing environment. We help set up communications structures and rapid response mechanisms in critical situations and streamline the flow of vital information to all relevant stakeholders. We are experienced in working closely with management, communications departments and external advisors such as lawyers and bankers, and function as external press spokespeople in a wide range of crisis situations.
