When an organisation is faced with a crisis, the first 72 hours are critical. Their actions, or inactions, may be subject to intense public scrutiny while the facts are still unfolding.
It is important that they have experienced advisors in their corner who can deploy the relevant legal experts to provide strategic advice and minimise legal and reputational damage.
At Beauchamps, our experienced team is dedicated to providing organisations with clear and decisive advice when a crisis strikes. This includes reporting obligations to regulators, managing key stakeholder relationships, corporate governance obligations and preparing to prosecute or defend any related legal action.
Crisis management has become an essential part of our digital age and frequently an organisation is judged on how they respond to the crisis rather than on the crisis itself. During a crisis, our aim is to act as a trusted legal advisor and co-ordinate a response to the multiple legal issues that arise.
Thomas O'Dwyer heads up the Crisis Management team and will co-ordinate the key team members to ensure any crisis is managed in a strategic and controlled manner.
