Tucker/Hall can provide a communications strategy that supports your legal position, but also focuses on protection your company’s long-term reputation in the public eye.
Public opinion of your company may change regardless of the final litigation results. Recovery from such a legal crisis is a long-term process, one which requires you to develop a communications plan beforehand. After the legal matter is resolved, you may need to rebuild trust in your different audiences, including the media. Reporters can move quickly in a crisis, and you may need to move quickly too. Tucker/Hall’s crisis experts can help you navigate these treacherous waters.
Crisis management plans prepare you to communicate directly with the public and with the media, to ensure your message is well received. While your legal team works to create a compelling case to protect your company in the court of law, your public relations partners should communicate that same message to external audiences to ensure you protect your reputation in the court of public opinion.
A litigation support team will develop a communications plan to support your organization during the entire legal process. Crises can put strain on your leadership team, therefore it is crucial to have additional communications experts to provide strategy and insights. This includes working with the media to provide factual information that helps your organization effectively communicate its position.
