Presenter: Brian J. Stephens, Caissa Public Strategy

The interplay between the courts of law and the court of public opinion are overlapping in ways they never covered in law school. From traditional media, to blogs, to social media, outside communications must be handled in ways that protect your client’s rights.

Scandals aren’t new, but the potential for misinformation to spread and damage your client is at an all-time high. From environmental disasters to information hacks to alleged criminal acts committed by top ranking officers, learning the steps to take when your client is facing a scandal will help protect the long-term reputation of the client and may stop or help in any potential legal matters.

Scandals not only affect a client’s reputation, but may also have significant legal implications, and lawyers are often brought in from the beginning.

In this 1-hour workshop, Brian will give you the steps that are crucial to the success of you and your client’s reputation and help you learn to deal with the court of public opinion. The interplay between the courts of law and the court of public opinion are overlapping in ways they never covered in law school.

General Credit: 1.00
Maximizing Your Client’s Return--Investigating Product Cases in Typical Negligent and Worker Comp Cases

This topic is intended to help attorneys maximize the return to their clients for their injuries by looking at other potential liable targets. In short, let’s not leave any money on the table when there may be another person or company responsible for your client’s injuries lurking in the shadows. In a car accident, is the manufacturer of the car liable? Manufacturer of the seatbelt? Manufacturer of the seat? If a person is injured at work, is the only recourse the employer, or is the equipment manufacturer liable? How do we know? What do we look for in these cases? What questions do we ask of our client or in discovery? This course will provide some insight and hopefully spur on the imagination to turn over rocks previously not noticed in an effort to find a way to help increase your client’s recuperation from their injuries and your own return on your investment into the case. Perhaps there are two bites to be taken from the apple.
