Bingham has developed a client emergency response team specially designed to help organizations manage through crisis situations . . . the kind that require immediate multi-disciplinary intervention in order to contain high risk threats, crises, and disasters and control the complex interrelated collateral consequences (investigative, regulatory, political, reputational, investor, lender, customer, insurance and market) that inevitably follow in their wake.
Bingham’s crisis team clients have included publicly traded, international and Fortune 500 companies from diverse industries including consumer goods, financial services, retail, chemical, pharmaceutical, energy, private equity, technology, construction, healthcare and the media as well as high-profile professional sports teams.
Bingham’s approach to crisis management is never purely legal. In each case, the response team’s approach will be as comprehensive or as targeted as the particular crisis requires. The group’s mastery of many extraordinarily complex situations, and our lawyers’ sensitivity to the strategic interrelationships among various parallel investigations and ongoing related civil litigation, has helped many of our clients emerge safely from potentially harmful situations.
By utilizing Bingham’s specialized crisis response team, companies facing extraordinary threats can rapidly bring to the table the multi-disciplinary skill sets and crisis management experience that many companies, consultants or law firms do not possess on their own, much less within an integrated team capable of dealing effectively in real time with the cascading legal, PR, political, governmental, HR, forensic, contractual, regulatory, insurance, financial, investor, law enforcement, class action, criminal defense and emergency communication needs of the crisis. In addition to legal excellence, our lawyers are highly skilled in managing the media and public relations issues that so often impact public perception in high-profile cases.
Bingham’s multi-disciplinary approach has the advantage of incorporating the resources available to a global law firm with a large network of local counsel and experts in numerous countries worldwide as well as a stable of in-house specialists available to join the team as needed.
These in-house capabilities include:
