HFN’s Crisis Management team combines leading experts from the fields of litigation, corporate crime, employment, cyber and other relevant practice areas into a single team able to provide seamless guidance on how to prepare for and manage different types of crisis events.
HFN offers its clients comprehensive legal advice on how to manage a crisis – whether it is dealing with a product recall, a mass tort event, corporate crime, whistleblowing events, regulatory investigations or a variety of other situations. Our aim is to guide the client through the crisis period by dealing with the different challenges in an effective and robust manner.
In particular, we work with multinational companies dealing with a crisis across multiple jurisdictions and advising on how best to respond in Israel. We bring detailed local legal knowledge together with practical recommendations for their Israeli operations while working closely with the client’s international advisors to ensure that the crisis is managed taking into account global considerations and avoiding taking action in one jurisdiction that would harm the client’s interests in other jurisdictions.
We work closely with leading PR advisors in order to minimize the impact of the crisis on our client’s reputation.
Our Crisis Management work also includes:
Our lawyers work with clients to assess legal risks and ensure that the client is aware of the regulatory rules that apply to their business and have the procedures in place to make sure that their activities are compliant. This includes preparing tailor made compliance programs for fields such as competition, employment and anti-corruption.
We have experience in conducting internal investigations on behalf of clients in multiple fields, including fraud, anti-corruption, regulatory compliance, financial or other misconduct.
Our Crisis Management team works with clients to prepare for the possibility of a dawn raid by various regulators and we can offer our clients a detailed guide on the recommended courses of action on how to behave if the regulators arrive at their door.
Lawyers from HFN can also respond rapidly to the clients requests in order to provide effective advice when needed by the client in its dealings with the regulators conducting the raid.
