Managing A Protracted Environmental Litigation Issue
FTI Consulting advised a publicly-traded multinational, multi-billion dollar public company as it faced protracted environmental cleanup claims and complex litigation issues related to a discontinued product.
FTI Consulting worked with the company, its internal litigation team and its legal advisors to manage the myriad of emerging and ongoing legal, political, and community issues being raised by a protracted campaign waged by well-funded plaintiff attorneys. The FTI Consulting team engaged with local stakeholders and influencers, including the media, coordinating with and managing local partner firms in individual communities.
This fully integrated public affairs and media relations program was deployed across multiple states and dozens of municipalities where cases had been or were expected to be filed. FTI Consulting effectively supported the litigation team and ensured the company’s point of view was a visible and effective part of the ongoing debate. FTI Consulting also helped the client achieve an early dismissal of key litigation in California.
This company continues to be an FTI Consulting client.
