“No comment” is no longer a winning strategy

Brunswick Review Spotlight on Litigation focuses on finding the right balance between communications inside and outside the courtroom.

Brunswick Group today released the Brunswick Review Spotlight on Litigation featuring influential legal voices from around the world, who every day are working to find the right balance between communications inside and outside the courtroom. The 13 articles underscore the vital importance for companies facing high-profile crises and litigation to participate thoughtfully and strategically in public conversation.

“Communications outside the courtroom can be tricky, particularly when a company is fighting on multiple fronts and anything said in one forum can have implications in another,” writes Ellen Moskowitz and Jonathan Glass, leads of Brunswick’s global Litigation Communications practice. “But time and again, we’ve seen that litigants who prioritize the outside world – with its echo chamber of 24-hour news and digital-user-led discussions – better weather the litigation storm.”

Navigating a public, high-stakes legal matter requires a constant, careful balance of competing priorities. The right communications strategy helps a company achieve that balance by supporting its legal position, while protecting its reputation.

Articles include:

  • Getting to the heart. Legal superstar Roberta Kaplan speaks with Brunswick’s Ellen Moskowitz about managing the message and the media in the legal fight for gay marriage.
  • Order in the court. England’s former Lord Chief Justice Igor Judge talks to Brunswick’s Charlie Potter and Caroline Daniel about changes in the role of media and courtroom culture.
  • Making the case. Top U.S. plaintiff’s attorney Steve Susman talks to Brunswick’s Mike France about the media and his successful challenges to conventional wisdom.

The complete Brunswick Review Spotlight on Litigation is available here.
