Crisis Management


China can present surprises: no matter how well-prepared foreign investors may be, there are always some situations that require trusted and experienced local assistance. In addition, China’s unique regulatory environment and governmental processes make crisis management challenging. DaHui has provided extensive assistance to myriad international clients in crisis management, internal and external investigations, compliance and damage control.

Our multidisciplinary team understands the subtleties of both the law and doing business in China across multiple industries. We have extensive experience handling matters that implicate the State Administration for Market Regulation, the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Cybersecurity Administration of China and various Public Security Bureaus across China. At the same time, we have our fingers on the pulse of local media and craft holistic crisis management strategies to succeed in the court of public opinion if the circumstances arise. A unique complement to our China teams are our lawyers in Hong Kong, New York and London, who can help coordinate global crisis responses if needed.

Whether engaged alongside the initial development of a crisis or after adverse actions have come about, our lawyers are always able to help our clients mitigate risks and manage outcomes, targeting satisfactory solutions that uphold the spirit of the law while also allowing for acceptable operating conditions.

Our services in this area include:

  • Discrete, prompt and definitive crisis resolution (independently or alongside specialized GR/PR firms)
  • Advice on internal and external investigations and legal audits
  • Advice on compliance/anti-corruption/white-collar crimes
  • Advice on smuggling, fraud and permit revocation issues
