Sutherland Asbill & Brennan Launches Crisis Management, Complex Litigation Website

February 22, 2012

HOUSTON (February 22, 2012) – The Houston office of Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP is announcing the launch of a new Crisis Management and Complex Litigation website, which provides clients and potential clients with information on how to handle important legal problems while they continue with ongoing business.

The new website, sutherlandcrisismanagement.com, includes information on Sutherland’s crisis management team, its crisis and litigation strengths, the firm’s experience in complex crisis situations, and news articles of interest on the ‘Crisis Notes’ page.

The site comes online as the firm continues its work as lead counsel for a key player in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill trial, which is scheduled to begin next week in Louisiana.

Sutherland’s Crisis Management and Complex Litigation Team has advised and defended clients simultaneously on multiple fronts, including parallel civil litigation and criminal investigations, multidistrict proceedings, putative class actions, congressional investigations and hearings, regulatory investigations, internal investigations, shareholder direct and derivative claims, and corporate disclosure issues.

“Our crisis team was chosen from different legal specialties among Sutherland’s offices across the country and is able to immediately address internal and external complex crisis situations for our clients," says Rachel Giesber Clingman, co-partner-in-charge of Sutherland’s Houston office, which is nationally recognized in energy litigation and crisis management, energy trading and derivative contracts, and offshore marine litigation.

Houston partner Steven L. Roberts, a member of the crisis management team, says Sutherland’s extensive experience in crisis situations allows the firm to immediately mobilize a targeted response for clients.

Sutherland’s crisis experience includes advising clients from a variety of industries, including an international drilling contractor in all litigation relating to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill; a privately held manufacturing company facing an antitrust problem; a NYSE-listed investment company attacked by a short-selling hedge fund; and a multinational industrial giant with revenue irregularities that were flagged on the eve of a year-end earnings release.
