Effective preparation for and response to a crisis or emergency situation is a critical element of operating any business organization, but particularly when the business activities, materials or facilities present environmental, health, or safety risks. Robinson+Cole's Crisis Management and Emergency Response Group has hands-on experience in collaboratively assisting clients in their crisis and emergency planning and response efforts. We work with clients to evaluate and improve upon incident planning efforts, internal documentation standards, training programs, and audit exercises. We also team with clients and experts in various disciplines to provide on the ground coverage as well as mid-incident and post-incident agency and public interface counseling and services, evidentiary efforts, root cause analysis, origin and cause investigations, and the essential follow up, liability allocation or reallocation, or defense.
Our Crisis Management and Emergency Response Group experience extends from explosions and catastrophic releases of pollutants to defective products and homeland security matters. Our team members have worked in a variety of client industries and have experience with incidents involving fires and explosions, tank, vessel, and pipeline failures, contaminated public water supply, maritime events, fatalities and injuries, property damage, environmental and natural resource impacts, business interruption, governmental investigations and enforcement and oversight, employment considerations, and all related litigation.
