High-Profile Arbitration & the Press: What About Confidentiality?

High-Profile Arbitration & the Press: What About Confidentiality?

High-Profile Arbitration_675

Imagine you are an attorney representing a high-profile entertainer or an entity contracted with that entertainer. The parties are in a dispute that lands in arbitration. In this one-hour webinar, the panel will consider confidentiality obligations and press relations in the context of arbitration proceedings. You will learn from varying perspectives: the entertainment litigator, the arbitrator, the press relations manager, and the American Arbitration Association. Our panel will review a hypothetical arbitration in the entertainment world, where industry, business, and local media are salivating to learn more about the dispute. 

The panel will tackle such questions as:

  • How will you manage media relations before, during, and after the arbitration?
  • How do you handle a call from a reporter, asking for details that have not been made public?
  • How will you handle your client, who is eager to make its case on social media?
  • How does arbitrator-ordered confidentiality establish parameters for what you can and cannot say to the press during or after the proceedings?
  • How do American Arbitration Association guidelines and the Rules of Professional Conduct of the New York State Bar Association affect your decisions?

A live reception will be held after the program for in person attendees.
