Who IS only Crisis

Headquartered in London and with 12 offices across the UK & Ireland, we are the most trusted crisis communications consultancy in Britain.
Part of Beattie, the integrated communications agency, we control, manage and contain issues that threaten the reputation of companies, brands and business leaders.


If you are facing a crisis, don’t bury your head in the sand. No one has more crisis management experience than us.

Every day our experts across the county contain crisis incidents that cause CEOs to lose sleep. You can trust us to:

  • Manage the crisis so that the outside world remains unaware there ever was an issue or, at the very least, ensure any negative impact is much less than originally feared.
  • Restore a battered brand’s reputation, re-establishing credibility on the internet and in the press and broadcast media.

If you are worried about an existing or impending problem, please call our helpline on 0800 612 9890.


From our offices in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow and Edinburgh we offer an extensive range of services:


We offer a 360 degree service including online reputation management, reputation restoration and issues management in the traditional press and media.

Our remit can cover everything from malicious attacks on social networking sites to full-blown exposes by investigative journalists.

We are called upon to provide crisis management support following incidents such as product recalls, cybercrime, data theft, factory closures, industrial accidents, terrorist threats, blackmail and incidents of a sexual nature.

Our case studies outline a few of the crisis incidents we have successfully managed.

How can we help you?



We have assembled a high-powered team of crisis management specialists including battle-hardened journalists, highly-skilled social media experts, smart digital operators and cyber security professionals.

Our reputation management team is on standby to protect and defend you 24/7, helping you with everything from creating a full-blown issues management strategy to framing crisis communications messages for the media, your investors or employees.

If your brand is being damaged by what’s already on the internet, we’ll get the offending references removed or bury them where they can no longer be seen.


Crisis simulations flop if they're not realistic, ours are. Watch our video to see how live news feeds, social media disruption and hostile TV crews can test your team to breaking point.


Only Crisis has a cyber security division which defends and protects companies from criminal hackers.

We can train your people and make them more security-aware. We can heighten your defenses to make life much more difficult for cyber criminals and we can monitor your network 24/7 in order to keep you safe.

If your network has been compromised and you have received a ransom demand, our security team can track down where the breach has occurred, deal with the problem and put measures in place to ensure your system is much less likely to be penetrated in the future.
