DALLAS—Michael A. Burns & Associates has named Greg Smith, an expert in crisis and issues management and litigation communications and former principal of Bustin & Co., to lead a newly formed public affairs and crisis communications practice.
 
“With the increased scrutiny that all businesses are receiving from legislative, regulatory and judicial quarters, we felt that it was important to be able to provide senior-level expertise to help clients better manage their corporate reputation,” said MB&A president and CEO Michael Burns. “Greg’s legal background, coupled with his counseling and communications expertise not only gives us an additional resource to call on in crisis, litigation and other issue-related situations, but will also help in crafting strategies to assist our clients in protecting and managing their corporate reputations.”

Smith has counseled clients on aviation disasters, environmental spills, financial and investment issues, bankruptcy proceedings, trademark infringement actions, labor, wage and pricing disputes, sexual and gender discrimination claims, plant closings, real estate transactions, key executive departures and criminal investigations.
