On Thursday, March 7, 2019 at 4:15PM, Lisa will speak on a second panel titled, “Crisis Management During Investigations—When Stoic Silence is Not the Best Defense.” The panel will cover the strategic and ethical implications of instant communication and how the perception of a client or case can be shaped or distorted. Panelists will also discuss how to use communications as an increasingly essential tool without breaching ethics rules or upsetting courts or prosecutors.
