A series of events can quickly escalate into a crisis at any organization. Such occasions require leaders to carefully consider the role of Directors, and how and when to engage their board.
- What should be elevated to the board in a corporate crisis?
- What is critical for boards to focus on in the first 48 hours of a crisis?
- As a crisis rapidly unfolds, how should boards address emerging issues?
Please join us for a thoughtful discussion and analysis designed for board members, general counsel, and other in-house legal team members. Our panel will discuss the importance of timely and appropriate board engagement in the wake of a crisis to mitigate liability, and successfully navigate the multitude of issues a crisis entails.
Sidley is pleased to bring together this experienced panel to share guidelines and tips for engaging your board during a corporate crisis.
