Crisis Communications & Special Situations

Crises are inevitable, it’s how you manage them that matters

Corporate reputations take years to build and can be destroyed in an instant. From contentious pipelines and data breaches, to natural disasters, labour disputes, C-Suite changes and class action lawsuits, National has advised on a range of issues. But while all crises are complex and unpredictable, the fallout can be mitigated if you are prepared for any eventuality. We help prepare our clients for the unexpected by developing a tailored crisis playbook, regular training and honing what we call ‘the crisis mindset.’

Our services include:

  • Data security breaches
  • Regulatory actions and product recalls
  • Management/Board changes
  • Proxy contests and shareholder activism
  • #Metoo and discrimination cases
  • Labour disputes and facility closures
  • Litigation and class action support
  • Natural disasters and industrial accidents
