Crisis management legal advisers available 24/7 globally

Rapid Response is a global service which helps you effectively respond to a dawn raid, cyber attack or other major incident. We will put you in touch with the right people to guide you through the incident response.

Regardless of how carefully a business manages risk situations can arise, usually unexpectedly, which require urgent specialist advice.

Would you know how to react:

  • After a cyber attack or data breach incident?
  • During an investigation or search by regulatory authorities?
  • In response to a natural disaster or pandemic?
  • When your senior executives are facing an interview by prosecuting authorities?
  • In the immediate aftermath of a serious industrial accident?

DLA Piper's Rapid Response service is designed to prepare you, guide you through and help you to avoid these and other emergency situations.

As well as providing urgent advice in an emergency situation, we can undertake a regulatory compliance audit to help you to identify where your risks lie; deliver tailored training on any relevant areas of concern including how to handle a dawn raid situation or cyber attack; and provide Legal updates including guidance on how these will affect your business. In the event of a major incident we have lawyers able to handle matters across every area of business law no matter what sector.
