Q&B Securities Partner Jon Hackbarth moderated a discussion on crisis communication with two experts who have many years of practical experience in crisis situations drawing high levels of media scrutiny; Q&B Litigation Partner Dan Conley, who leads the Quarles Crisis Communications Team, and Jody Lowe, President and Managing Director of The Lowe Group, Financial Communications. The panel focused on the complicated attorney-client privilege, litigation and public relations issues that can surprise management in a crisis situation, and best practices for promptly gathering the facts, and putting together and controlling your message in such circumstances. The panel emphasized the importance of preparation before the crisis arises, and the importance of coordinating media and legal strategies, whether the issues involve arise from actual or potential lawsuits, regulatory enforcement, executive departures, corporate restructuring or workplace tragedies.
