Crisis Management

Crisis management is the guiding function of how to take over a crisis

A crisis is an unusual, unplanned event that has the potential to adversely affect the good name or credibility of the organization, which could jeopardize the very existence of the organization or severely damage it, or jeopardize a line of products / services or sub-units, impair financial performance, to harm the health or condition of consumers, workers, the surrounding community and the environment in general.

Typically, such a situation is out of the control of managers. A crisis includes within it the nuclei for success and the roots for failure. Crisis management is the guiding function of how to take over a crisis, reduce damage and harm to the reputation of the organization, while reaping the benefits of the situation.

Our firm has extensive experience in managing crises in their legal-commercial perspective. The understanding that every crisis is a multi-armed legal octopus, which requires an in-depth analysis of the situation in its various legal aspects, while providing an immediate response in a wide range of legal areas (contracts, corporations, banking, liens, labor law, defamation, intellectual property, real estate, etc.), alongside legal proceedings such as restraining orders, foreclosure orders, seizure orders (“Anton Piller”), international orders (Mareva orders), allowing the crisis to be managed and taken over at a very early stage from the moment it is formed, and in any case brought to completion, while minimizing damage.

The basic understanding that every business is prone to crisis, especially in the face of the world becoming a small global village and the understanding that information is now accessible on social networks and Internet search engines, leads our firm to offer our clients a legal toolbox to implement on a daily basis, which can minimize risk and avoid potential crises, thus creating a defensive legal Iron Dome over the client.

The understanding that the business arena, which is saturated with intrigue and competition, requires regular adoption of the sentence that “the best defense is an attack,” allows the implementation of legal functions that constitute a “sword” and thus create a full legal framework whose essence is to protect the client’s interest.
