Global Practices

We organize our work into seven communication practices, each focused on a different specialized area of communications.

They are the where we manage clients with specific communications needs through a high level of seamless expertise provided locally or around the world.

Crisis and Issues Management

Crisis and Issues Management

Warren Buffet once famously remarked that “it takes 20 years to build a reputation, but only five minutes to ruin it.” Today, every crisis is global, social and viral and with some of the strongest social media capabilities, resources and relationships, we help our clients navigate this situation with speed and clarity.  We help support company reputations through a full array of crisis and issues, from rumors and allegations to human safety and health, accidents, recalls, ethical and moral challenges, litigation, environmental damage, employee and labor issues, government affairs and regulation, industry debates and criticism, change management and online reputational issues.

From crisis preparedness to crisis response and crisis recovery, MSL has the strategic counselors to help you identify your risks and prepare for and manage the situations that arise.  We use the latest real time tools from digital dashboards to social platforms to ensure your story is being shared with precision to the right people at the right time in the right place.
