Value to Clients
At Royston Rayzor, clients come first. That’s why the firm has long been committed to providing emergency response legal services. Over the years, Royston Rayzor has assisted with the fallout of many major incidents: explosions, fires, spills, and other polluting episodes involving vessels, refineries, offshore structures, oil and gas drilling operations, and transportation. There’s no telling when catastrophe will strike, so we make it our business to be available 24/7.
We have two designated lawyers or investigators—one of whom is always a partner—assigned on a rotating basis, available to respond on short notice. Clients will hear from us within 30 minutes of receipt of an emergency message. Our emergency responders will get to the incident site quickly and conduct the necessary initial investigation, preserve and collect relevant evidence, and deal with the federal, state, and local government agencies, including the U.S. Coast Guard, EPA, and OSHA.
We do this to provide our clients with an early assessment of the legal exposures presented. Depending on the size and seriousness of the incident, Royston Rayzor can augment its response with additional professional personnel with experience in the legal management of catastrophic events. It’s another example of how Royston puts its clients’ interests ahead of its own, serving them with the highest standards of competence and integrity when they need it most.
