1 min

Venable partner Stu Ingis was quoted in an April 17, 2014 Inside Counsel article on crisis management for general counsel. The article details three criteria for an effective crisis communications plan including building a competent team, defined roles and responsibilities, and post crisis communications.

Commenting on the importance of building a competent team, Ingis said, “At each moment of a crisis, there are decisions — whether about privilege, forensics, evidence preservation, or public statements and commitments — that affect the long-term posture of the enterprise. A successful crisis response team navigates the immediate crisis in a manner that protects — and in some cases even advances — long-term strategic objectives.”
