Crisis Management


When a member, employee or leader of your for-profit or not-for-profit organization appears to have betrayed the trust of the organization, who can you turn to?  When high-speed, uncomfortable decision-making is necessary, and you find yourself unprepared to weigh legal and publicity risks, you need outside, unbiased counsel with experience and discretion.

Krevolin & Horst’s crisis team helps clients deal with potential public relations issues as well as legal issues in a timely manner so as to contain any harm as a result of an incident. Team members have extensive litigation backgrounds and are well equipped to evaluate risk, frame issues in the appropriate light, and assist and guide investigations, . They are also experienced in leading proactive, public dialog and conversation around accountability, apology and responsibility.

We know you want to do the right thing.  Krevolin & Horst helps temper emotion and maintain focus so that the “right thing” is the best choice for all constituencies involved. We ensure that “bet the company” decisions are made well-informed and supported by solid communications planning. Depending on your challenge, you can’t always avoid consequences, but you can select what terms and at what time to address them.
