Shannon Stucky Pritchett, Senior Managing Director at FTI Consulting, is based in New York and specializes in developing and executing communications strategies for companies announcing a restructuring, merger, acquisition or other type of transaction as well as those seeking to manage their corporate reputation in relation to a specific issue or event.

In the area of restructuring, Ms. Stucky has advised clients including Samson Resources, the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, IAP, Orchard Supply Hardware, Vertis Holdings, American Suzuki Motor Company, NewPage, Sea Island Company, Goody’s Family Clothing and Tropicana Entertainment. These assignments included Chapter 11 and CCAA filings, 363 sales and out-of-court restructurings, but in each case, the key objective was to maintain business continuity as the client worked to address its debt and/or liquidity challenges
