Our team was retained by a leading national law firm representing a health care company under investigation by the Department of Justice and facing aggressive reporting by The Wall Street Journal.
Working closely with the company and its outside legal counsel, our team’s Boston and Washington offices developed a comprehensive communications effort to respond to the allegations, including the creation of a website designed to rebut the charges and correct inaccurate information. We also engaged in intense negotiations with The Wall Street Journal’s reporter and editors to refute false information and help shape the reporting.
In anticipation of Justice Department announcements and news coverage, we also developed and implemented a comprehensive program for communicating directly with the company’s important audiences – employees, physicians, and other stakeholders – through the dedicated website and corporate communication channels.
In the midst of a reputation crisis for the company, our team mitigated the impact of developments on key stakeholders, keeping them informed and maintaining confidence in the company during a very volatile period in the company’s operations.
