Miller & Martin Introduces New Crisis Management Practice Group

October 15, 2014


The firm has announced the formation of a Crisis Management Practice to serve the needs of businesses and organizations throughout all of our markets.

The new practice, the first of its kind in Chattanooga, will involve 13 Miller & Martin attorneys, including Don Aho, Roger Dickson, Crews Townsend and Jim Haley in Chattanooga, as well as Danny Griffin in Atlanta. They will focus on crisis management from pre-planning to management of actual crises. Miller & Martin partner Zac Greene is the practice group leader.

In announcing the news, Haley said, "A business crisis is best managed before it ever occurs. Our new Crisis Management Practice Group leverages the firm's deep experience in business operations, government enforcement, dispute resolution and litigation to offer our clients a multi-disciplinary approach to avoiding, managing and recovering from unexpected business interruptions."

In creating this new practice, we are including Atlanta-based Jackson Spalding, a marketing communications firm with a specialty in crisis management, to add public relations and media relations resources for our clients' crisis management needs.

"A big part of managing a crisis when it occurs is maintaining strong communications with a business's varied audiences to ensure accurate information is shared in a timely manner," Haley stated. "We are pleased to have Jackson Spalding as part of the crisis management team. We believe in our business philosophy and our ability to deliver effective legal solutions for our clients while producing client-focused growth for our firm."
