Our crisis management practice covers a wide range of diverse solutions not only in the area of law, but also related to PR, management, or HR, depending on our Client’s situation. The offer of Rainka (and, where necessary, its trusted partners who are renowned experts in their fields) is a prime example of a tailor-made package based on changing requirements of a particular event. 

Crisis management essentially involves three fundamental stages:

  1. Anticipating events leading to a problematic situation (mainly while providing a continuous, comprehensive service to our Clients).
  2. Immediate, multi-faceted reaction to the event, including support in determining its source and mitigation of its negative impact.
  3. Post-crisis audit and implementation of improvements to minimize the risk of similar events in the future.

The unquestionable advantage of Rainka’s crisis management services lies in their comprehensiveness. Our team, permanently supported by independent experts, works effectively and multi-directionally to maximize and, most importantly, accelerate the positive effect of the undertaken initiatives.
