I hired Stacy to manage the communications strategy for a shareholder lawsuit alleging securities violations, among other things. Stacy grasped the complex securities transaction quickly. She developed a communications strategy that took into consideration a myriad of reputational and business concerns, and her messaging was clear, accurate and authentic. Stacy’s counsel was extremely helpful, and having her ready to handle the media was very reassuring.
