A whistleblower’s testimony led to action against this investment company concerning a wireless spectrum auction. Both the FCC and DOJ became involved.
The investment company was well known in the market and had a high-profile CEO. There was considerable concern within the organization about the matter and its reputational impact and among clients. We organized an internal Working Group and put in place both an internal and external communications strategy and plan to address all questions and concerns.
Engagement with core internal and external audiences helped stabilize these important relationships as the matter was resolved. We also managed the media coverage to ensure that there was understanding of the facts and arguments.
