Deloitte ramps up crisis management skillset with Regester Larkin acquisition

Deloitte has acquired the specialist consultancy group Regester Larkin to double its crisis and strategic risk business

DELOITTE HAS DOUBLED its crisis and strategic risk business with the acquisition of specialist consultancy group Regester Larkin.

The crisis, issues and reputation management consultancy Regester Larkin will merge with the Big Four firm’s existing crisis and resilience business to form large practices in this specialist area. The new practice will operate under the ‘Regester Larkin by Deloitte’ brand. Regester Larkin has advised on high profile corporate crisis’ for two decades.

Rick Cudworth, crisis and resilience partner at Deloitte, said: “By combining with Regester Larkin’s unrivalled experience and skills we will deepen our ability to support the growing demand of our clients in dealing with strategic risks through a fully integrated crisis management solution.”

Andrew Griffin, CEO of Regester Larkin, said: “We are looking forward to the scope, reach, depth and access to additional expertise that being part of Deloitte will bring. We are particularly delighted that Deloitte is keen to invest in and grow our strategic crisis response, crisis communication and issues management offerings.”

The acquisition comes at a time when businesses are facing a myriad of uncertainties, growing threats from cyber and other strategic risks, and corporate reputations under greater scrutiny. The news comes as Deloitte has increased its investment in technology.

Griffin continued: “Our clients love the fact that our crisis preparedness advice is based on our real life response experience and we look forward to supporting many more organisations as they respond to strategic issues and crises.”

The merger supports Deloitte’s growth agenda and focuses on issues for their clients at board and senior executive level.
