Tough Talks: It’s Not What You Say. It’s What They Hear

Tough Talks: It’s Not What You Say.  It’s What They Hear
Managing a crisis situation, long before trial, is today a necessary skill set for attorneys.

Meet us at the Bar for a crash course in crisis management, for attorneys and clients.

Legal controversies today are tried in the Court of Public Opinion — at least as much as in any Court of Law. Therefore, lawyers, law firms and clients have much to gain (or lose) by the way a controversy is positioned in both the traditional media, as well as Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms where reputations built up over years of good work can be shattered in an instant.

Topics include:

Managing What They Hear
Managing What They See
Case Study


Bruce Hennes, Managing Partner, Hennes Communications
Thom Fladung, Vice President, Hennes Communications
Thomas Wynne, Esq., Vice President & General Counsel, The Interlake Steamship Company
