Your company may have considered the operational aspects of a crisis. But, has it considered how to handle the legal consequences that could include waiver of the attorney-client privilege, government or regulatory oversight, sentencing of the company or other wrongdoers, the possible need for an internal investigation and significant litigation? Has your company considered the urgent need for truth in a crisis in the age of “alternative facts”? Will your company be the target of Presidential tweets in a badly handled crisis? The legal aspects of pre-crisis planning, mitigation, remediation and recovery will be explained in clear language.
