Crisis Response and Crisis Management

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

It is the collateral consequences that distinguish a crisis from a case, and that means time is a factor. A crisis needs be responded to immediately, by professionals with experience coming into bad situations and changing the outcome. While other firms are running conflict checks, drafting engagement letters and seeking management committee approval, we are already on the ground and working around the clock to solve your problem. The key is knowing what to do, knowing how to do it, having the resources to get it done, and having the ability to leverage those resources. Bet the company, bet your life, bet your reputation. Crisis management is what we do.

Our crisis experience includes:

  • International and political incidents.
  • Consular emergencies.
  • Investigations, arrests and prosecutions, particularly involving cross-border or international issues.
  • Situations requiring liaison with law enforcement or government agencies and officials.
  • Strategies to avoid or minimize the need for government intervention, court oversight or monitorship.
  • Extortion.
  • Missing or abducted persons.
  • Reputational crisis management.
