A law firm employee goes on a murderous rampage at a health club. A corruption scandal erupts, in which at least one defendant has personal or business ties to a New Jersey law firm. An attorney and former House of Representatives leader whose position as chair of a controversial health care lobbying group results in his resignation from the law firm. Stealth layoffs leak out and get reported in the media and on influential legal blogs that raise questions about the economic health of the law firm. These are real and very recent examples of crisis situations that law firms have to be thinking about if they are serious about protecting their hard-earned reputations with clients, prospects, employees and the communities where they have offices.

Unfortunately, many firms still do not adequately prepare for the worst when it comes to their business, even though they are paid well for advising clients about potential crises in their business or personal lives.
