Addressing a major crisis requires a coordinated approach among the key players at the affected organization and its outside advisors (lawyers, communications advisors, forensics experts, etc.). Brunswick is an essential cog in that machine – we help to ensure that a situation doesn’t get worse when the world is watching to see how a company responds to an existential threat.
