Prevent Lawyerly Leaks and Stay On Message


In legal scenarios and trials, lawyers are frequently the greatest source of leaks and surprise releases of information. Every time you see, hear or view one of those in-depth analyses of a legal situation, it’s likely one of the participating attorneys is involved, because reporters sometimes are lacking in legal knowledge and they find lawyers are easy sources. In turn, lawyers often call reporters to trigger stories about their cases—when they feel the coverage is hurting their case, the reporter is especially inept or the lawyers are made to look foolish or incompetent. Lawyers believe that when they explain things logically and carefully, reporters will understand and adjust their coverage. As important leaks go, lawyers are second only to the top bosses and board members who get to do this because it is their enterprise.
