Crisis Response and Crisis Management

Rapid response and international dexterity in complex, often unprecedented, situations and crises.

What distinguishes a crisis from a case is its collateral consequences. Those consequences can be legal, commercial, geopolitical or reputational. They can affect a company’s share price, your ability to hold office, or the ability to open bank accounts, conduct international business or access the U.S. financial system. When we talk about crisis management, we do so with the clarity that comes from years of experience. This is literally what we do. We can work independently or with your lawyers, your executive team, your board of directors, your public relations team and your other advisors. Our value proposition is simply this:  If you have a problem, anywhere in the world, call us. We will fly in and we will figure it out.
