Crowell & Moring Releases Investigations Crisis Response Mobile Application

Washington – July 7, 2020: Crowell & Moring’s multi-disciplinary Investigations Practice has launched a “Crisis Response” mobile application, providing easily accessible tools and resources for users managing crisis scenarios, including search warrants, government subpoenas, cyber breaches, whistleblower claims, employee injuries, or harassment claims.

“Enforcement can come in many forms, and the actions in the early minutes and hours of an investigation are critical to achieving the best possible outcome,” said Tom Hanusik, chair of Crowell & Moring’s Investigations Practice and a partner in the White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Practice. “Companies, business leaders, and general counsel can always benefit from an easy to use resource that puts the crucial information all in one place, right at their fingertips.”

The app features a number of convenient tools, including:

  • Crisis response checklists consisting of FAQ-style roadmaps that help users identify immediate action items, and actions to avoid;
  • Resources including forms and templates, such as a document preservation memo, and essential directives for navigating an investigation. For example, a “search warrant notice to employees” template is available for companies who are notifying employees that a search will be conducted by law enforcement, and notes the kind of employee behavior and cooperation that the employer would expect during the search; and
  • A contact directory in which users can quickly find and contact Crowell & Moring attorneys who focus on specific subject matter areas in which a company or business leader may require assistance.

The Crisis Response app is available on both iOS and Android, or by clicking here.
