This CLE webinar will address how lawyers (both inside and outside counsel) can plan for and guide their clients through unexpected events. Failure to anticipate and prepare for crises can exacerbate the damage that an event can cause.


Your client's crisis is nearly impossible to predict and almost certain to happen.

Executive behavior can impact your client's brand and business: the public associates the executive with the company, resulting in negative news about the executive becoming negative news about the company. Executives can hurt their companies on the inside through acts like embezzlement. Executives can hurt their companies on the outside through embarrassing public behavior.

Crisis can also strike when something goes wrong with the client's business. Although there are established protocols for product safety recalls, companies are still finding their way when it comes to data breaches and cyberfraud. Even something as simple as a viral video of bad customer service can have immediate consequences.

Sometimes the crisis comes from the outside, either through a natural cause like a hurricane, or a tragedy such as a mass shooting. Either way, counsel must confront a myriad of genuinely human concerns while also examining force majeure clauses, insurance coverage and many other decidedly impersonal issues.

Listen as our panel of experienced business crisis managers takes you through what should be in your tool kit well before crisis strikes.



  1. Identification of general crisis management planning and implementation
    1. What issues can be anticipated
    2. What roles can be preassigned
  2. Discussion of specific crisis areas
    1. Executive issues
    2. Bad news issues
    3. Tragedy


The panel will review these and other essential questions:

  • How do we acquire general crisis management tools?
  • How do we anticipate crises?
  • What proactive crisis avoidance steps are recommended?
  • Which general principles are applicable to repeating circumstances?
