Our lawyers specialise in the legal and technical side of reputation and crisis management, for corporates and individuals.
We regularly work with communications consultancies with whom we have confidential arrangements in place.
Traditional and digital media, social media, and communications to third parties are our primary focus.
Companies and individuals facing a crisis may not necessarily end up in a weaker position at the end of it, provided they take the right steps.
Confusion is probably the greatest enemy of productive reputation and crisis management. To respond effectively to a crisis, clients usually require clear, tailored, and strategic plans devised by experts, often at extremely short notice.
Communications should often be legally vetted before being released, and court remedies should be considered in relation to third party threatened or actual publications, such as injunctions to stop publication of information.
Our lawyers and affiliated communications specialists can assist with these cases. They can also advise on potential rather than actual crises, including on whether to make a corporate or individual statement before it is released and its likely impact if it is shared.
