Government relations on foreign soil can be complex and full of challenges for the inexperienced. In today’s world of rapidly evolving technology, resource transfers, wealth shifts, satellite communications, and democratic upheavals, U.S. business needs to be fully prepared to compete in the global marketplace. Globalization has created a more interrelated world than ever before in history and that phenomenon will increase exponentially in the years to come. International trade is more complicated than domestic commerce. Conditions of competition abroad often seem unfair and unfamiliar to American businesspeople and local laws, customs and protocol may be alien to those looking to expand their reach into overseas markets.

Our international team experts can prevent a foreign government from legislating against a company, nationalizing its property or ordering its removal, through a combination of marketing tactics, diplomacy, troubleshooting and government relations.

To win acceptance of an idea, product or person in any international community, it is essential to be familiar with the local customs, beliefs, history of the area, current economic and political realities, newest trends and, of course, the language. This coupled with the experience and expertise to find the right legislative, political or public relations strategy is of key importance. Our team brings decades of global experience from the fields of business and diplomacy to the table with the ability to collect that key intelligence and help you formulate an educated and strategic business decision.

Public-relations-and-crisis-management

Each day the world’s headlines are filled with companies dealing with one crisis or another. Some crises are self-imposed. In others, the companies are the unfortunate victims of a crime, sabotage or an accident. Some companies, like Johnson and Johnson, responded well to their Tylenol crisis and others, like Exxon and the Valdez incident don’t fare so well. Crisis communication and Issues management is really “reputation” management. The inability and know-how to deal with a corporate crisis quickly, effectively and professionally can mean not only significant “brand” damage but devastating losses in revenues, the faith of stockholders and potential exposure to liability and tort actions brought about by plaintiff attorneys.

Having the right team on your side is critical in the face of a corporate crisis. Our team of Crisis Communication professionals can teach, train and/or work directly with your management team to be proactive, anticipate crises and with a sudden phone call or text message, deploy and activate all the necessary resources to minimize the damage and get your “corporate ship” back on course.

Our team will work with all the requisite components to address and mitigate the situation where appropriate; public safety personnel such as police and fire departments; the media; local, state and federal government and regulatory entities, as well as individual departments within your corporate structure such as executive, legal, security and supporting entities to devise an “plan of action”. Your plan will include identifying potential risks, weaknesses and crises beforehand. We will provide a “template” or plan of action based on your specific corporate vulnerabilities as well as a post-crisis evaluation to assess what occurred and how to better address and prevent similar experiences in the future.
