In today’s fast-moving environment, a corporate crisis can unfold over the course of a few hours on social media and rapidly generate media attention, litigation, state and federal regulatory inquiries, and—quite often—an invitation to testify before Congress. In the first installment of our webinar series, WilmerHale partners will discuss practical steps to prevent and prepare for a potential crisis. This includes:
- assessing potential risks to your organization and taking steps to minimize those risks;
- preparing for the unexpected, including designating a cross-functional rapid response team;
- creating a plan for consistent internal and external communications—even as fact development is ongoing; and
- navigating investigations and parallel proceedings.
During the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to contribute questions online. CLE credit will be provided.
