Previewing: Crisis Management for Attorneys and Their Clients

Legal controversies today are often tried in the Court of Public Opinion as much as they are in any Court of Law. Therefore, lawyers, law firms and clients have much to gain (or lose) by the way a legal controversy is positioned in both to the public and key stakeholders via both traditional media social media. It's in these arenas where reputations built up over years of good work can be shattered in an instant.  Especially in today's world of "gotcha" journalism, managing a crisis situation, long before trial, is today a necessary skill set for attorneys.  This seminar will focus on a highly-strategic approach to crisis management and crisis communications for a wide variety of situations, enabling attorneys to help their firms and clients move messages forward or mount a defense against an outraged public, unhappy customers or a sudden press onslaught.
