Finsbury is an internationally recognised global leader in strategic communication, with three US offices and a further nine worldwide. They specialise in crisis matters and litigation, in which regard clients praise the firm for being “extremely impressive - they have a depth you don't usually see in communications firms.”

Work highlights

Finsbury has acted on behalf of Volkswagen AG as its agency of record for all litigation matters since 2016, including a range of matters stemming from the high-profile emissions scandal.

Notable practitioners

Paul Holmes is Finsbury's North America CEO. Holmes specialises in strategic and crisis communications and has a particular knack for cases of political, international and regulatory import. Before joining Finsbury in 2007, Holmes was Reuters' editor of political and general news. "When you are trying to develop a strategy, Holmes will be the first to point out the ways you are being overly optimistic or unrealistic. He is a cool-headed realist when it comes to evaluating proposed strategies and proposed talking points. He understands what will pass muster with the media and what will be dismissed," notes one client of the former journalist.
