Crisis Response

Business crises occur when commercial, legal and reputational risk collide.

Overview

We work with you over the long term to prevent a crisis happening, and we are at your side to respond effectively if the unexpected happens. 

We can help you take control of a crisis if it occurs and have a proven track record with numerous and diverse organisations. We know how to engage effectively with regulators, authorities and other third parties to minimise your legal risk. We are adept at navigating a way through the reputational impact of a crisis in a world where news travels fast.

We also work closely with clients on their policies and practices to minimise the risk that a crisis will occur in the first place. Because we are a full-service firm with years of experience advising clients in a broad range of sectors, we have the commercial and practical expertise to give preventative counsel with your business interests at heart.

Our crisis response teams are drawn from across our firm, leveraging our institutional knowledge of your business and our multi-disciplinary expertise. We tailor our teams to meet the circumstances you are dealing with and we give both practical and legal advice. We thrive under pressure and we work tirelessly to get ahead of events to protect your position.
