Managing Crisis Response
With a team of former senior government lawyers and officials with experience managing actual, real world crises, Marten is ready to intervene at the earliest stages of an emergency, taking all necessary and appropriate steps to mitigate a business and high-profile executive’s risk exposure, from property damage, to reputational harm, to legal liabilities, and the chance of civil or criminal enforcement by government agencies or Congress.
Our experience spans major oil spills, waste water releases, drinking water crises, ethics violations by government officials, employee sexual misconduct, criminal fraud matters, federal regulatory investigations in the areas of restricted products and air quality, and high-profile congressional oversight and hearings—all under intense media scrutiny and continual threat of parallel and follow-on enforcement.
Although our team is small, our clients call Marten first. They recognize that concrete results are what satisfy their stakeholders and corporate boards. Drawing on our experience in the White House, Cabinet Agencies, and State AG Offices, we devise and implement rapid response, loss prevention, media strategy, legislative engagement, brand protection, and litigation defense. We protect and guide clients under the crosshairs, managing all facets of their case. We play defense where necessary, go on the offensive where appropriate, and stay by your side until the storm has passed.
