Co-chaired by Marie Cossette, partner at Lavery, the conference "Crisis Management: The legal advisor’s survival guide", sponsored by Lavery and that took place in Montreal on November 27, was very successful. This major event enabled participants (mainly in-house counsels and communications directors) to better understand and align the respective work of lawyers and public relations officers in crisis management situations.
This conference included first-rate speakers who succeeded in putting into perspective the event’s three thematic topics: law, communications and media. Ms. Cossette gave the opening speech along with the other co-chair, Ms. Marie Grégoire, as well as a conference on the "lawyer and public relations officer duo". Mr. Jean Saint-Onge, Ad. E., partner at Lavery, discussed with the participants a few conflicts that were efficiently managed from a public relations standpoint.
The participants were very pleased by the relevance of the subjects discussed and the quality of the speakers. Conference organizers were able to create a casual and yet studious climate that helped generate meaningful exchanges.
