2020 is as if 1918, 1929 and 1968 had all happened at once. The country is polarized; the pandemic changed forever how we look at work and what – and who — are essential; economic uncertainty is pervasive. The tragic death of George Floyd and the demonstrations and massive social movement immediately thereafter has instantly and fundamentally changed corporate identity and brand goals. Corporate neutrality is dead. Even prior to 2020, social media had already swallowed so many brands and reputations in a sea of anger and distrust that communicators already had to rethink strategy.

As courts open up, as companies reimagine themselves, their law firms and litigation; as a forthcoming election further highlights a country more divided than at any time since the Civil War, how do lawyers and their clients handle crisis and litigation communications? Nothing is in a vacuum and everything symbolizes something. What do lawyers need to know to be highly effective team crisis and litigation communications members in the age of transparency and division?

Richard Levick, Esq., Chairman & CEO of LEVICK, which pioneered litigation communications over three decades ago and has represented over 30 countries and more than half of the AmLaw 100 and more than a third of the Global 100, will present best practices and recommendations for a brave new world.

Live Interactive Q&A – Bring/Submit Your Questions

Time will be reserved to answer specific questions from attendees and we encourage those in attendance to come with questions prepared. If you would like specific questions addressed, you are invited to submit questions in advance to Chad Sluss at
