Crisis Response

McLane Middleton is experienced at dealing with virtually every kind of crisis a school might face, including natural disasters and pandemics, to serious misconduct toward students and employees, including alumni reports of sexual abuse that surface in the current day.

We assist schools in responding to, identifying, and investigating financial misdealing and other types of fraud. Our information security and privacy team is on-call to handle data breaches and cybercrime. When necessary, the firm partners with its network of nationally recognized communications experts to help our clients manage media and social media exposure, as well as the communication needs within its own school community.
