Reputation is not an insurable asset. And if a crisis arises and is not handled effectively, lasting damage can be caused to a company’s long-term viability.
We work with our clients to anticipate and plan for risks that their organisations may encounter in the course of their day-to-day business operations. Whilst it’s a given that we understand the legal aspects, our expertise extends to the reputational and commercial issues that organisations face when unexpected events occur.
"Its experience in handling disasters and crises around the globe is second only to the Red Cross, and rests on a 130-year track record of major energy, aviation and marine catastrophes and incidents." Chambers & Partners
Clients recognise our vast experience in dealing with the practical and legal problems that follow a major disaster, emergency or crisis. Our teams respond immediately to a wide range of incidents, from major shipping casualties including pollution and contamination, collisions, fires and groundings to accidents in the aviation, energy and rail sectors.
Together with our clients, we develop and test crisis response plans for use in an emergency. These plans set out proposed actions and responsibilities within the organisation and provide specific guidance on legal, insurance, reputation, communication and business issues.
The overall purpose is to safeguard company assets, of which the most important is reputation.
For crisis situations: Our International Emergency Response hotline is manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
