Crisis Management Support

Contact an Expert

Understanding historical context—and confirming the relevant facts—can be at the heart of crisis management.

HAI | Legal has assisted law firms, corporate counsel, and public relations professionals in understanding the complex social, political, and economic dimensions of crisis situations. Our company was launched as a result of one of our first investigations–detailing the federal response at Three Mile Island, the site of America’s worst nuclear power accident.

Since that time, HAI | Legal has been consulted or called to investigate and research some of the most sensitive matters—human trafficking, the use of forced and slave labor during World War II, and Holocaust-era looted assets. HAI | Legal also served as a historical consultant to the Nazi War Crimes and Japanese Imperial Government Records Interagency Working Group (IWG), established under the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act (Public Law 105-246).

HAI | Legal has also advised clients on the history of known and emerging contaminants-of-interest like vinyl chloride, coal ash, and the “forever chemicals” of perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS), as well as a range of other potentially toxic substances.

HAI | Legal has completed more than 1,400 historical research investigations—we have extensive experience in delivering insight and perspective in support of the most complex legal matters.

HAI Legal | The Factual Research and Analysis Consulting

Start Your Research Investigation

Prior to accepting new engagements, HAI | Legal undertakes a standard conflicts check to ensure that we are free and clear to work on your matter.

For a conflicts check we will typically need the following information:

  • Your ultimate client
  • Adverse parties
  • Named co-defendants (if potentially adverse)
  • Name of specific sites (if applicable)
  • Type of legal or regulatory matter
  • Case citation for the legal matter (if available)

Once we confirm that we are clear to work on the matter, HAI | Legal will schedule a project briefing to discuss scope and potential level of effort.
