Crisis Management

From data breaches to sensitive government investigations to general issues in the workplace, 21st century companies are increasingly facing business-critical challenges that can quickly develop into crises with enterprise-threatening consequences. The ability to anticipate, protect against, and respond effectively to crises is essential to protecting a company’s brand, reputation, and bottom line. Our Crisis Management Group helps companies and individuals navigate through the most complex and high-profile crises, from addressing immediate concerns to developing long-term strategies that reinforce our clients’ business objectives.

Our Crisis Management Group draws upon the strength of our deep bench across a wide variety of practice areas, which enables us to form teams with subject matter experience in relevant markets, industries, and regulatory environments. As circumstances require, we are able to join practitioners from any of our leading practice areas in Litigation, Corporate & Financial Services, Compliance, Investigations & Enforcement, White Collar Defense, Cybersecurity & Privacy, Communications & Media, and Securities Litigation & Enforcement in the U.S. and abroad. Our experience allows us to mobilize effectively and efficiently in response to a client’s crisis situation, whether it is a sensitive internal investigation, complex regulatory or governmental investigation, or civil or criminal litigation. We also work with our clients to evaluate areas of risk through corporate compliance and ethics programs and other audit and risk assessments to identify and minimize the potential for a crisis situation.

Our multidisciplinary practice includes former White House officials, senior veterans of the SEC, congressional staffers, former officials from leading United States Attorney’s Offices and the Department of Justice, and attorneys with in-depth experience in sensitive matters relating to international business practices, cybersecurity, enforcement, national security, trade, environmental safety and employment. Attorneys in our Crisis Management Group have successfully handled matters for clients across a wide spectrum of industries including financial institutions, insurance, life sciences, manufacturing, media and entertainment, retail and technology.
