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.
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.
