Managing Media Madness: Crisis Communication for All Lawyers


In this age of 24/7 media coverage, attorneys must be prepared to represent their clients not only in the courtroom, but also in the court of public opinion. This program will address many elements of crisis communications, including preserving the attorney-client privilege, working with a PR firm, what can and should be said to the media, and other crisis communications prevention strategies. This presentation is designed for all attorneys, including in-house counsel and attorneys involved in criminal defense, corporate and transactional matters, and civil litigation.

Comments from attendees:

"Case by case examples where client-priviliges, professional responsibility, and media-management are important. Good explanation of what reporters perceive as "guilt" e.g., no comment statement made by lawyer..."

"Great speakers."
