WASHINGTON, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 29th, communications and legal professionals and crisis managers from across the US and the DC area will be attending The National Law Journal & The Legal Times' 2nd Annual Crisis Mitigation: Preparing for and Navigating Fallout from Catastrophic Events. The event, which is being held at the Mayflower Hotel, is a full-day CLE seminar featuring critical elements of crisis management and litigation. Media & Communications Strategies is one of the event sponsors, and its president, Scott Sobel, will be presenting at the conference from corporate, government affairs and media relations perspectives.
"Preparation before a crisis hits is essential to cut down on the short and long-term effects of the event and prevent the crisis from festering into a business, organizational and reputational disaster," warns Scott Sobel. He adds, "having the ability to have blunt conversations with clients or managers and fostering collegial relationships with the media, if possible, gives you a much better chance of crafting a crisis strategy and mitigating the results while looking toward rebuilding business and reputation."
Mr. Sobel is no stranger to communications issues. He is also an award-winning former corporate public relations practitioner and major market and TV network investigative journalist, who has counseled with premier law firms concerning high-profile crisis issues involving the firms and their clients.
