Hanbury partner Paul Stephenson said: "[This] is shaping up to be a really exciting year for us. We’ve got huge demand from clients and believe we are really well-placed to help companies navigate the post-Brexit world in Berlin, Brussels and London."
"We want to become the go-to consultancy for anyone with complex political or reputational challenges and we are thoroughly enjoying the challenge of trying to get there," he added.
The agency has also added NewsGuard, a tool to help fight fake news, to its client roster, supporting the brand with a UK corporate PR brief.
