CASE STUDY: Litigation Communications

Caught in the crosshairs of multiple government agencies

An international investment bank faced crisis, with the firm and its senior executives caught in the crosshairs of multiple government agencies.  

Faced with criminal investigations, Congressional inquiries, civil lawsuits, and intense media interest, Vianovo worked hand in glove with our client’s litigation team to organize a comprehensive response that protected both reputational and critical legal equities.

As the crisis unfolded, we developed a strategy to explain our side of the story to each audience in a way that enhanced a rapidly evolving legal strategy.  When Congressional investigators demanded testimony, we counseled our client on how to approach hearings with wall to wall media coverage and use the opportunity to advance our narrative.  As the crisis engulfed the reputations of other players in the industry, our client navigated the process and emerged with reputation intact.
