Managing a crisis during lockdown

11 November 2020

We have experienced lawyers across the globe who can rapidly mobilise a team to advise and protect your business. Find out more about our Crisis Response service.

As we enter another period of lockdown, many shops, bars and restaurants will close their doors for a few weeks, whilst many employers will continue to provide a work place that remains 'covid-secure' in this ever changing situation. We are already starting to see an increase in activity from regulators such as the HSE and local authorities, who are increasingly under pressure to take action when work places struggle to effectively manage the pandemic, whilst keeping the business running.

This month, our Regulatory, Compliance and Investigations team is re-launching its Crisis Response Service, to help safeguard your business and protect your reputation. There has never been a better time to sign up to our Crisis Response Service, which will provide you with the comfort of knowing that if you suffer an unexpected incident, our highly skilled response team is on hand 24/7.

No matter what the nature of the crisis and no matter where in the world, we have experienced lawyers across the globe who can rapidly mobilise a team to advise and protect your business.

Whether you have an accident in the work place, an environmental incident, allegation of financial crime, a serious data breach or a dawn raid visit from a regulator, we have specialists who will ensure your business continuity whilst supporting you through the various stages of the crisis. Early intervention is key to successful crisis management and through DWF's own e-investigation specialists we are able to provide a rapid full legal service.

Please visit this link to our Crisis Response flyer where you will find further information about the benefits of Crisis Response. Registration to our Crisis Response Service is free, simply visit our Crisis Response web page and fill in the 'Get In Touch' form.
