November Monthly Meeting: Litigation Public Relations

November 18, 2020 @ 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.

Join us at 7:30 a.m. for networking before the meeting.

While questions about business litigation often result in “no comment” statements, effective litigation public relations can turn legal challenges into opportunities to build relationships with stakeholders. Megan Paquin, APR, CPRC, vice president at Poston Communications, will share insights from her experience as lead communications counsel in a landmark civil rights case to explain how public relations professionals and legal teams can better collaborate to communicate an organization’s stance in the court of public opinion.


  • Recognizing opportunities within legal challenges and making a case for litigation PR
  • Effective collaboration with legal teams, including considerations public relations professionals need to know (e.g., First Amendment, defamation, trial publicity and ethics).
  • Aligning your organization with indirect litigation to communicate corporate values.

 About the Speaker:
