LONDON—Crisis, issues and reputation management consultancy Regester Larkin is to acquire crisis management and business continuity specialist Steelhenge Consulting. Both firms are experts in crisis preparedness and management.

Regester Larkin’s expertise in live crisis response and communications and issues and reputation management will be supplemented by Steelhenge’s focus on crisis planning, training and exercising, and business continuity management.

According to Regester Larkin chief executive Andrew Griffin, “Bringing Steelhenge into the RL Group further extends our depth, differentiation and leadership position.”

Steelhenge will retain its name, and the team will move into Regester Larkin’s London offices immediately. Managing director Dominic Cockram will become a shareholder and director of Regester Larkin.

The two firms have already collaborated successfully on a number of client projects.
