Bettison and Welbes to Present “PR Disasters — Lessons for Lawyers” (1/30/13)

Our next presentation is sure to be a great one, involving reporters, PR disasters and lawyers.  Along side the veteran journalist John Welbes of the Pioneer Press, we will present a CLE entitled “PR Disasters — Lessons for Lawyers”.  The details:

  • Business Law Series: PR Disasters – Lessons for Lawyers
  • Thursday, February 28, 2013
  • 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (CENTRAL TIME)

Here’s a description of our CLE, from the MinnCLE website:

Lawyers play a critical role in advising their clients not only on legal strategy, but the practical implications of legal matters as well. A client’s business reputation may be significantly impacted by litigation, criminal proceeding, or other high-profile issue, and lawyers serve their clients well when they are able to help identify, manage and mitigate these risks.

Bettison and Welbes will offer case studies and observations on legal matters that led to disastrous public relations moments and public relations strategies that increased legal risk and liability.  Attendees will get a unique perspective from Stacy Bettison, communications strategist and attorney, and John Welbes, business/white-collar crime reporter for Pioneer Press about how the media covers these stories, mistakes made by organizations and lawyers pursuing legal strategies and the power and peril of social media.
