LFMP-DC November Program: We Have a Crisis! Now What?

November 7, 2019 - 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

Please join your peers and colleagues on Thursday, November 7th, 2019 for our next event, We Have a Crisis! Now What?

“Crisis.” No one wants to have to face one, but as communications and PR professionals in the legal industry, crises are an unavoidable part of our jobs. Crises can take many shapes and forms, ranging from personnel issues to IT and technology problems to weather events and natural disasters that impact the firm’s operations. They’re unpredictable, they can strike at any time, and knowing how to deal with them effectively can be among the most valuable skills a law firm PR pro can have.


Please join your colleagues and peers on Thursday, November 7th for our next event, We Have a Crisis! Now what? At this event, a panel of senior leaders and outside experts will lead a discussion on the role law firm communications and PR professionals play when the inevitable crisis hits. From defining what a crisis is to discussing response strategies, the personnel involved and knowing when to seek outside help, attendees will come away better informed and armed with ideas and strategies for how to prepare for the next crisis situation.
