Whether it’s a leak of firm financials, cyberattack, failed merger talks or natural disaster, no law firm is immune to crisis. Learning how to prepare for and manage a crisis when it strikes is essential. This session will address the three main types of crises and best practices for mitigating your firm’s risk and protecting its reputation.This will be a hands-on workshop where attendees will be split into small groups and given real-life crisis situations to manage. The groups will be asked to identify the key issues and develop a communications strategy and messaging for different key audiences. The session’s leaders will work with the groups to map out their crisis plans and then bring everyone together to discuss the scenarios and solutions that were developed. This interactive session will teach attendees the key elements of a crisis plan and give them practice working through a crisis before it becomes a reality.
