"'In a World . . .':  Working With your Board Through the Made-For-Hollywood Crisis," Presenter, The New Corporate Governance Landscape - Striving for Excellence in Today's Challenging World, ACC National Capital Region, May 2016.

The Social Network, The Wolf of Wall Street, The Big Short, Too Big to Fail, Michael Clayton, The Informant! Significant crises such as corporate takeovers, unanticipated leadership changes, and “bet the company” litigation or regulatory actions create drama for corporations that have the potential to be Hollywood-ready. Learn how counsel can help a corporation mitigate and manage these crises, to minimize the drama, protect the brand, and hopefully avoid Hollywood’s attention. This session will discuss hypothetical corporate crises and how counsel in various roles can help guide their boards away from Hollywood Boulevard and back to reality.
