In today’s business environment, a crisis can take many forms and quickly shift management’s focus from business goals to damage control. Crisis situations are, by definition, chaotic, highly adversarial, and extremely fast-paced. Whether facing allegations of corporate misconduct, issues of labor unrest, or public opposition to corporate expansion plans, businesses must immediately define a strategy that simultaneously addresses the legal, political and publicity aspects of the crisis. Combining our experience in government, politics, and the media with our demonstrated legal skills, Waller’s crisis management team is uniquely qualified to provide strategic advice in any crisis.
Waller helps clients manage and avoid business crises by providing a frank assessment of the company’s ability to wage a successful campaign. Using an integrated approach that addresses legal, political, business, and public relations issues, we develop strategies and tactics to create a consistent message focused on both short-term challenges and long-term goals.
