SNR Denton Forms Risk & Crisis Team
In a press release from SNR Denton, the firm announced on Friday that it has created a brand new Board Advisory and Risk & Crisis Management team to complement its global Corporate Governance practice. The new board is comprised of professionals that will help corporate boards and executive management address issues with governance prior to them becoming crises. The board will also be able to respond to emergencies in a quick manner should they occur.
“Today’s crises demand simultaneous attention to a host of challenging issues beyond the required legal response—including public relations, strategic communications, political reaction, reputation management and response to the concerns of employees, customers, vendors and suppliers,” said Mike McNamara, the firm’s US Managing Partner. “SNR Denton is uniquely positioned to provide clients an integrated, holistic, strategic response on all fronts related to corporate governance crises.”
McNamara continued with the following: “For example, our public policy and strategic communications expertise regarding political and public relations strategy allows us to respond to a crisis from the perspective of experienced practitioners. Our team of crisis communications strategists are battle tested and understand the critical value of collaborating with lawyers and professionals in the firm’s other practice areas to ensure that messages delivered in the heat of a crisis are accurate and consistent with the long-term legal needs of the client.”
The press release said that the areas of focus for the Board Advisory and Risk & Crisis Management team include the following:
• Civil Litigation
• Congressional Investigations
• Crisis Management
• Directors’ Duties
• Internal Investigations
• Regulatory Investigations
• SEC Investigations
