Ingredients for the successful collaboration between communication and legal teams in a crisis situation

How a company or an individual handles a crisis can make this crisis stronger or weaker in the end.

  • Professional communication alone cannot make a problem disappear, but it hopefully leads to a much faster de-escalation.

  • And professional legal advice can minimize or even avoid juridical risks and potential litigation – but being right from a legal point of view is not always identical with being right from a moral perspective.

It is therefore key for any successful crisis management that PR and legal work closely together.

IRF and the law firm Advestra jointly prepared some “food for tought” on the ingredients for a successful collaboration between communication and legal teams, including concrete examples and the specific requirements for stock-listed companies. The article is available here:
