While “planning for the unexpected” may sound like an oxymoron, this year has taught us that some foresight could be the savior of a business, and that swift, measured response to a dire situation could be a business’ best friend.
To help businesses be prepared and to help businesses through potentially catastrophic times, Barley Snyder is pleased to announce it has formed a Crisis Management Service Team.
Firm partner Jennifer Craighead Carey, the chair of the new group, said the attorneys involved with the group have always done crisis management work in their own practices. The new group pools those resources into one convenient location.
“The crisis management experience the attorneys in this group have amassed is extensive and impressive,” Craighead Carey said. “Whether it be in government investigations, cybersecurity or any number of other common crisis scenarios, these attorneys have worked with businesses as a partner to navigate them through their tough times.”
Barley Snyder managing partner Jeff Lobach, one of the attorneys on the new team, said the group also will work proactively with businesses to help prevent a crisis from happening.
“This is something our clients need our help with now, and whether there is a pandemic or not, this is something our clients know now they’ll always need,” Lobach said. “Sometimes a crisis is unavoidable, but if there are ways to prevent it, this team will help businesses find it.”
