Much of Buchanan’s crisis management and communications work takes place behind the scenes. Crisis situations demand clear analysis, sound judgment and most importantly, experience.
Buchanan’s experienced Financial Media and Investor Relations teams help clients to identify potential areas of risk; ensuring they have an effective crisis communications process in place; training them to handle hostile audiences and helping to diffuse any potential issues before they do any damage.
Buchanan has been advising company boardrooms for 25 years proving invaluable in seeking to protect shareholder value in a wide range of situations including profit warnings, boardroom disputes, executive changes, employee litigation, fraud, competition enquiries and trade union campaigns.
Buchanan helps companies by developing communications strategies, positioning statements, Q&A documents and handling the direct liaison with the media during crises through a 24/7 press office and, when required, acting as company spokespeople.
