What the team is known for

Brunswick Group is an international advisory firm with deep expertise in collaborating with legal counsel to design and execute communications strategies to protect or restore client reputations. Its team is staffed in part by former practising lawyers, ensuring that legal challenges and risks are considered at every stage. The agency enjoys a strong reputation for its advice to blue-chip clients, particularly those in the financial sector.

Strengths

"Their support has helped ensure that we have been able to land our key messages in media reports about the case, helping achieve balanced reporting. A particular strength has been their ability to provide insights into the likely media strategy and tactics of the claimants in this case. That has helped inform our preparation and media handling. They have regularly made themselves accessible to discuss new issues and external enquiries at short notice, which has proved very valuable. Compared with other firms, Brunswick offer a strong breadth of skills and experience, and a more client-focused approach."

Work highlights

Notable practitioners

A former barrister and previously director of Edelman's litigation and legal affairs practice, Antony Dunkels is a highly experienced litigation communications practitioner who is praised for his "calm and effective" approach and "excellent judgement." A source calls him "a real professional," adding that he was "helpful, practical and handled internal clients very well. He was quick to grasp the details and the challenges of our position and really helped crystallise our thinking."

Charlie Potter is a qualified barrister and is well versed in broadcasting and media regulation. He co-leads the agency's litigation practice in London, where he regularly advises media, telecommunications and professional services clients on communication issues. One client comments: "Charlie brings deep litigation comms experience. As a former barrister, his grasp of the technical elements of the case and ability to communicate it in plain English has inspired the confidence and trust of senior partners in our firm." Another source states that "he doesn't compromise the litigation strategy but is vigilant for any reputational pitfalls we may not have thought of. He's always got the client's back."
