by AccountingWEB on
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) has announced a Joint Business Relationship (JBR) with Levick Strategic Communications (Levick), a leading crisis, litigation, and reputation management communications firm.
The collaboration between PwC and Levick provides global reputation management, crisis, and litigation communications program development and implementation - along with digital media due diligence - to PwC clients throughout the world.
The JBR enables PwC to seamlessly deliver multiple diverse communications services to businesses that now face increasingly greater scrutiny by regulators, shareholders, consumers, elected officials, and the digital and traditional media.
"It is a most significant value-add for our clients who are facing regulatory crisis that threaten their brand," said Glenn Ware, a PwC managing director and leader in the firm's Anti-Corruption practice.
"We live in an era of unprecedented accountability, marked by constant and ongoing threats to corporate brands and reputations. With its strong track record protecting those brands and reputations, Levick Strategic Communications brings added value for our clients," said David Jansen, a PwC principal and leader in the firm's Anti-Corruption practice.
Jansen continued, "For global companies and clients, the collaboration between PwC and Levick underscores the critical view that, in today's environment, virtually all important business decisions must be also guided by a communications team able to address brand and reputational impact at every level - on the Internet, among shareholders and analysts, in the media, and internally."
"We are delighted and honored that PricewaterhouseCoopers - a leader in professional services - has chosen our firm for this JBR to provide such vital services to its clients," said Richard S. Levick, President and CEO of Levick Strategic Communications.
"As transparency continues to define the global marketplace, business consulting and business communications are inseparable," said Levick. "Whether it's cross-border M&A, digital due diligence, high-exposure litigation, anti-corruption efforts, or public offerings and other monetizing events, clients can now be the beneficiaries of PwC and Levick services wherever and whenever their vital interests are affected."
