Crisis Response and Crisis Management
Rapid response and international dexterity in complex, often unprecedented, situations.
In a crisis, time is a factor. Our crisis practice has always been based on our ability to rapidly respond practically anywhere in the world, our ability to quickly investigate to determine the facts, and our experience guiding clients and their counsel through situations involving significant legal, commercial, political, geopolitical, and reputational consequences. Our crisis management experience includes:
- The prevention of international and political incidents.
- Consular emergencies.
- Responses to investigations, arrests and prosecutions, particularly involving international issues.
- Situations requiring liaison with government agencies and officials.
- Strategies to avoid or minimize the need for government intervention or court oversight.
- Resolution of issues between VIPs and governments.
- Missing persons.
- Reputational crises.
