Chester Abbey is a member of The Praetorian Group, an elite syndicate of inter-connected organisations who engage in deep collaboration to resolve complex issues. TPG was created with a view to solving a major problem in the crisis management industry; a critical incident can often prompt different organisations to compete for the lead position and believe that their service is the key to resolving the issue. This invariably leads to motivated reasoning and a lack of synergy between the organisations who are all trying to achieve the same goal. Our approach prioritises problem solving above all else and enables the optimal crisis response. Law firms often clash with public relations firms or private intelligence agencies for the dominant position in a crisis.
