Crisis Management/Media Relations
Sherrard Roe Voigt & Harbison's Media Relations, Communication, and Crisis Management team provides a comprehensive suite of services for businesses and individuals to protect their brand and maintain effective communication channels. Our team has a unique ability to manage crisis management and public relations needs while protecting attorney-client privilege. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, SRVH works with clients on media preparedness and crisis management in situations such as:
- high profile litigation
- civil and criminal investigations and other government inquiries
- data security and cyber breaches
- business disruption
- casualty events
- competitor interference
- corporate successions
- extraordinary corporate events
Our team advises clients in an array of fields, including healthcare, sports and entertainment, education, financial services, business outsourcing, manufacturing, retail, media, governmental entities, utilities, and nonprofits.
Led by Amy Rao Mohan, an Emmy-award-winning former news reporter and television anchor, the team features attorneys from our litigation, corporate and regulatory practice groups having practical experience ranging from holding elected office to serving in law enforcement to working as executive-level corporate managers and in-house counsel. These varied perspectives help SRVH not only manage unexpected crises but also proactively assess risks to develop policies and best practices for managing messaging while handling significant legal, financial, and public relations exposures. In conjunction with senior management, corporate communications teams, and, as needed, outside PR firms, SRVH handles situations both in the courtroom and in the court of public opinion—including balancing disclosure requirements and transparency with practical needs of confidentiality and discretion—while protecting attorney-client privilege and maximizing clients’ interests.
