Webinar Materials: When a Crisis Strikes: Effective Business Planning and Communications

April 16, 2020 Seminar Materials

With a health and economic crisis underway, the in house legal team is a crucial part of a company's response team. Whether facing the COVID-19 pandemic or an employment-related claim and subsequent investigation, your business and communications strategies need to work together from the start.

This webinar kicks off with an overview of the top ten things in house counsel need to know to best deal with internal investigations. Seasoned Professionals from Verrill and its government relations subsidiary, Maine Street Solutions, provide in house counsel with insights into preparing for a crisis, how things have changed since the pandemic hit, and how they will likely change again post-pandemic, in addition to addressing crises that may arise out of this difficult time.

In the digital era, things can become public rather quickly, causing detrimental effects to the company that are hard to overcome, regardless of the legal outcome. This webinar explores the balance between the legal investigation and obligations, and reputation management.
