You’ve seen – and represented – them both: the attorney who is cocky, bordering on reckless when dealing with journalists, and the lawyer who is too media-shy for his/her own good.

Once you’ve landed the interview for your lawyers, the next step is to prepare them to be helpful to journalists and to walk the fine line between being unduly reticent and overly aggressive. Toward that end:

Panel discussion on training lawyers to be good interviewees and how to make the most of interview opportunities, including:

  • Best practices/pet peeves
  • Value of backgrounders
  • Managing expectations on both sides 
  • On the record vs. off the record vs. background interviews
