Join HB Litigation Conferences and Alston & Bird for the Crisis Response Workshop: Best Practices for the First 7 Days, a complimentary program open exclusively to in-house counsel, on April 24 at The Grand Hotel in Minneapolis.

A crisis can occur at anytime, anywhere and can spiral out of control quickly if not managed properly. In-house counsel play an important role in immediately addressing and resolving a wide spectrum of company crises. Using scenarios based on recent, high profile events, an interdisciplinary team of partners from Alston & Bird will lead an interactive session with all attendees about best practices in managing crises to reduce legal exposure and avoid business disruption. The workshop will also discuss ethical issues facing in-house counsel during the very early stages of crisis management. Attendees will have the opportunity to share their experiences as in-house attorneys and gain useful information and techniques to use in a variety of future crisis situations.

The expert panel of speakers includes:
Colin Kelly, Partner, Products Liability and Litigation & Trial Practice Groups, Alston & Bird
Mike Brown, Partner, Co-Leader Investigations – Government & Special Practice Group, Alston & Bird
Jim Harvey, Partner, Intellectual Property & Technology Practice Group, Alston & Bird
Charlie Morgan, Partner, Labor and Employment Group and Leader of OSHA Practice Team, Alston & Bird
