Back in January we broke the story that David Scott was leaving NATIONAL Public Relations for another agency. Also in January we announced that Peter Block had left his post at Maple Leaf Foods. David Scott and Peter Block have joined forces to launch Hansell McLaughlin Advisory with the goal to help clients assess risk, navigate the regulatory environment, identify governance solutions and manage impact on reputation. The new, first-of-its-kind firm is affiliated with Hansell LLP. The new firm will be focused on delivering integrated legal, governance, government relations and communication advice. The four Founding Principals of Hansell McLaughlin Advisory are Carol Hansell, Ron McLaughlin, David Scott and Peter Block.
Industry veteran Ron McLaughlin leads the government relations practice, helping clients to navigate the political and regulatory environment in Ottawa and provincial capitals across the country.
