insbury continues to expand its influence as a globally-integrated strategic communications consultancy. It specialises in managing complex assignments in corporate reputation, financial and transaction communications, public affairs and crisis management. Finsbury has offices in the UK, the US, mainland Europe, the Middle East and this year boosted its presence in Asia by opening an office in Japan.
2016 marked the beginning of a strategic partnership between Finsbury and HERING SCHUPPENER, the leading strategic communications consultancy in Continental Europe. The now seamless global offer has resulted in more than 20 joint projects, notably on large M&A transactions including Bayer/Monsanto and Linde/Praxair, and major global reputation management mandates for ABB and KION, as well as the global crisis management assignment from Volkswagen.
