With the explosion of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Yelp, blogs, and other social media platforms, information-sharing has reached a whole new level. The power of these platforms lies in the speed at which information can spread, the constant accessibility of that information, and the size of the audience being reached. Needless to say, social media is changing the way we communicate, and recognizing its impact on various aspects of your business is worth examining.

What problems could this pose to your business?

  • An employer fires an employee who complained about her supervisor on Twitter.
  • A property owner tries to pull down a YouTube video and website created by a potential buyer describing updates that that the owner isn't in a position to make.
  • An unhappy customer describes her experiences on Yelp.
  • A competitor figures out a consulting firm's prospect list by looking at an account director's LinkedIn profile.
  • A manufacturer is held liable for blog posts made about its product by a third party.
  • A mid-level manager at a public company makes a seemingly innocuous post on Facebook, and ends up disclosing confidential information before the SEC filing.
  • A restaurant responds to public uproar after a video showing unsanitary practices goes viral.

On June 15th, Levenfeld Pearlstein will be hosting a multi-disciplinary panel that will explore real life situations where the ease of communications meets the reality of legal risk, and what your business team can do about it. Due to the range of business issues listed above, we encourage our guests to bring their entire teams, including those in human resources, IT, customer service, marketing, and management.

Registration 8:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.

Program 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
