Lindsay Thomas leads this service and advises clients on how to approach and communicate with the regulator in an ever more demanding and complex regulatory environment.

Camarco has expertise across the energy and resources sector. The team has worked with some of the world’s finest independent oil, oil services, renewable energy, gold, coal, and iron ore companies.
The strategy for the energy and resources team is to work with a select number of high quality clients covering the various sub sectors and geographies. Our experience within the sector allows us to advise clients on every aspect of their communications with the key stakeholders that matter to the senior management teams.
We advise companies on their relations with investors, sell-side analysts and the press to ensure these, often capital intensive companies, can access capital efficiently and when it is needed. The team has specific experience with resource IPOs, buy and sell-side M&A, crisis management and defending energy companies from activist investors.
The team is well placed to advise its clients on their relations with the Governments and communities who are impacted by their operations, ensuring clients have a long and sustainable license to operate.
Camarco has expertise across the industrials sector, which encompasses a broad range of sub sectors including infrastructure and construction, support services, utilities, aerospace and defence, manufacturing and engineering.
These industries face a diverse range of challenges and often have to operate within highly competitive or highly regulated markets subject to the vagaries of government policy.
The focus for the industrials team is to provide insightful and solid advice based on past experience. We often manage PR and IR in relation to business critical issues for clients. Over many years we have worked on every scenario such as plane crashes, asbestos, supply chain disruptions, product recalls, M&A and bid defences – as well as helping companies to establish consistent stock market valuations which reflect the underlying strength of their brands, business models and prospects.
Our strategy is to retain and grow our strong reputation within the industrials sectors, ensuring that our clients are always well understood by the key investment commentators from within the sell-side analysts, media and investors. Most importantly, we pride ourselves on the depth of sector knowledge we have as well as strong contacts and time-sensitive market intelligence.
Over recent years there has been a period of consolidation across some of the industrials sub-sectors and we have been actively involved advising on high profile M&A transactions – both on the defence and aggressor sides. The campaigns we have led include investor, media, analysts, customer and employee relations.
Within the regulated and utilities industries we have spearheaded campaigns to launch new local government initiatives as well as being cognisant of the wider regulatory environment.
Camarco has long standing expertise in a number of sub sectors within consumer industries, most notably travel and leisure, retail and motor retail.
We advise companies on their relations with investors, sell-side analysts and the press to ensure our clients can access capital efficiently and when it is needed.
The team has specific experience with consumer IPOs, demergers, restructurings, buy and sell-side M&A, crisis management and investor relations.
Camarco has extensive experience across the real estate and housebuilding sectors, including high profile advisory roles for FTSE 250 companies, REITS as well as private companies.
Our IR expertise is invaluable in ensuring that the investment community and investment commentators understand our clients’ particular positions within the property sector, the income producing potential of the various asset classes they own and the ability to unlock the latent value of assets through management’s actions.
The diverse nature of the sector means that we know and understand complex businesses and are well placed to manage Company’s City relations for on-going financial communications, M&A, special situations and crisis management.
