Tennessee Justice Programs: Dealing with High-Profile or Newsworthy Cases


In the 24-7 news-cycle world, any case can potentially explode into a high-profile or newsworthy case.  When this happens, lawyers face complex problems of protecting their clients while navigating ethics rules pertaining to confidentiality and publicity.  Speaker Bruce McMullen, who has a wealth of experience handling high-profile cases, will discuss how a lawyer both complies with ethical responsibilities and manages media relations for public clients -- in light of Freedom of Information Act requests and duties -- private clients in light of reputational and competition concerns.  Bruce will also talk about ways to combat damaging and inaccurate publicity.
