About Us

Leveraging more than four decades of experience in the private sector, the federal government and the non-profit community, The Bromwich Group is a strategic consulting firm focused on assembling interdisciplinary teams to diagnose and solve critical problems faced by organizations of all kinds, and to provide those clients with the solutions they need to succeed.

Led by Michael R. Bromwich, The Bromwich Group provides crisis management counseling, strategic advisory services, public affairs and awareness services, and assistance to federal, state and local law enforcement agencies facing urgent systemic and operational challenges. The Bromwich Group is not a law firm.

The Bromwich Group, based in Washington, D.C., undertakes projects throughout the United States and around the world.

The firm’s practice focuses on:

    • Crisis management: The Bromwich Group provides a comprehensive set of advisory services will address the diverse elements that, in isolation or in tandem, create a crisis for a private company or public organization – including serious regulatory issues, governmental or congressional investigations, and negative media coverage.
    • Strategic advising: The Bromwich Group assists private and public companies and organizations in dealing with the challenging issues they face in developing coherent organizational strategies, implementing those strategies, building new organizational capacities, and reforming organizational culture. The practice includes comprehensive public affairs services to include strategic media and stakeholder outreach, led by Melissa Schwartz.

  • Law enforcement: The Bromwich Group assists federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in dealing with the most urgent problems they face, especially those that involve the excessive use of force, internal police misconduct, inadequate internal controls, and inadequate training.
