Crisis Management

Preparing for major disruptions to business operations has never received such attention.

Growing environmental, health and safety standards combined with intense media scrutiny and stakeholder concerns mean that you need to clearly identify major risks which may affect the business and plan for all eventualities. Our integrated practice of regulatory experts and litigators is ideally suited to advise on developing, planning and implementing a crisis strategy. We advise on integrity testing plans, provide practical guidance on managing relationships with regulators and resolve disputes with as little disruption to our clients’ business.

In particular, we can advise on:

  • developing a management and organisational structure to respond to an incident or crisis
  • existing emergency response procedures
  • the preparation of key documents to manage the role of parties such as contractors or JV partners
  • selecting, appointing and managing other external advisors such as PR or media consultants
  • training staff on crisis procedures
  • managing the relationship with regulators in the event of a crisis
  • bringing the business back into compliance
  • civil and criminal proceedings which follow an incident
