Crisis Management CLE: Investigations and Communications for Attorneys.
Monday, December 9, 2013 from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
At the Lycurgus Group, we work with attorneys under the most stressful circumstances possible. We’ve learned in those rare instances, many attorneys aren’t prepared and equipped with proper procedures.
With that in mind, we’re hosting a free CLE – Crisis Management: Investigations and Communications for Attorneys.
It’s vital for you to prepare, and for you to have the tools to prepare your clients, before the crisis hits.
The event will take place on at the Conference Center at 5181 Natorp Boulevard, 1st Floor, Mason, Ohio 45040. A continental breakfast will be provided before the CLE.
This course has been approved by the Supreme Court of Ohio Commission on Legal Education for 2.0 CLE Hours, including 1 hour in ethics.
Please RSVP for by by calling 614-859-9570.
You can also RSVP by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the keys to responding to a crisis is that an institution should not be “investigating itself.” What happened at Penn State to its football program provides a good example. The criminal charges against high-ranking members of the institution, including the University President, illustrate the need for companies and institutions to be increasingly aware that investigations conducted by objectively credible people may be subject to conflict of interest criticism. While such criticism is often unfair -- institutions are unlikely to risk excellent reputations for any single employee – it remains an avoidable fact.
