Article Series – Crisis Management: From Anticipation to Action

Corporate Counsel

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to prove, crises are often more encompassing than we may be prepared to tackle unless we have a plan, anticipate problems, and prepare our teammates for coordination and action. In a three-part series published in Corporate Counsel, Faegre Drinker’s Michael C. Zogby and Kaitlyn Stone partnered with in-house leaders to outline pragmatic strategies for in-house counsel and business partners to address corporate threats spanning the entire timeline of catastrophes — from anticipating and avoiding crises, to successfully managing real-time business emergencies, to partnering inside and outside the organization and maximizing your organization’s ability to learn and grow from a crisis event. Part One discusses adapting red teaming and premortems as tools to anticipate crises in business. Part Two digs into how to assemble a top-notch team to manage disasters. Finally, Part Three analyzes the challenges unique to cross-border crises and provides strategies for overcoming them.
