Crisis Management

Crisis Management

Your trust has been broken; we can help you heal.

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.

"Halsey Knapp guided us successfully in contesting an extraordinarily complex contract, and in the process proved to be not only an astute negotiator but a most wise counselor and trusted friend. From the outset he won the confidence of our Board and our community and thus was able to lead us through some very difficult times with aplomb and grace. He is the consummate professional with a warm and winsome demeanor."
- Chairman of the Board of Directors , President Emeritus Emory University
