Why choose our Crisis Management Lawyers?
Fieldfisher's team of expert lawyers can assist at every stage of a crisis – whether a crisis has just broken and a company is looking for fast, strategic advice on how to respond, wants continued assistance in navigating all aspects of the unfolding crisis, or advice on preparing for potential crises.
With extensive knowledge across key industries and multiple jurisdictions, we can assist with crises of any size, tailoring individual teams with the right expertise to the needs of our clients.
In the critical first few hours and days after a crisis breaks, we work closely with our clients on an initial response. Then, we are by our client's side, assisting with:
- continued management of the crisis, including engagement with trusted PR and communications representatives on crisis messaging
- conducting internal investigations
- providing strategic advice on engagement with regulators, investigators and/or other relevant external agencies.
Once the crisis has calmed, we will continue to work with our clients on learning from the root cause of the crisis and help to ensure that any relevant recommendations stemming from any internal or external report are implemented and communicated clearly within the wider company or organisation.
Crisis management prevention and planning
Our clients do not need to wait until a crisis unfolds to access our range of services and expertise. Although some crises are not foreseeable, many can be dealt with at the early stages through implementing strong systems and frameworks that will help with handling and mitigating the impact of any such crises.
To assist our clients with this aspect of crises prevention management, we can review and advise on existing risk management systems, provide training on crisis response and risk management, and create and test bespoke crises management plans, tailored to the needs of our client.
