Protecting reputation – the legal issues and remedies
Protecting the reputation of the companies we represent is fraught with risk. What we as PR professionals communicate externally on behalf of the firm, and how we respond to media enquiries, can have huge implications for the business if we don’t get it right, potentially causing significant financial and reputational damage. To support the CIPR’s ethics month, this engaging, informative and often humorous presentation from specialist defamation lawyer David Summerhayes, gives guidance on what the law says, common defences to defamation and will work through some fascinating and thought-provoking case studies to help PR professionals ensure that we are aware of the implications of our actions and act appropriately.
