ACC NCR Webinar - Leadership in Crisis: How to Persevere when Faced with Challenging Issues

Speaking Engagement

In today’s fast-moving environment, companies must plan for the next crisis or risk falling behind. 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 this webinar we 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.
  • Guidance on maintaining attorney-client privilege, or planning ahead for selective waiver of privilege 
  • Role of in-house counsel in a crisis – is legal the quarterback of the offense, or just one of numerous players
