Everyday PR for Lawyers - Chapter 3 Tip - Part 1

I encourage every firm, no matter how big or small, to have a written media policy. Simply put, law firms and their attorneys can and should control all messages pro­vided to the media for reasons of message management, ethics and, in the cases of trial publicity, to protect the clients’ best interests.

Your firm’s media policy should address: part 1
• Who may speak with the media on the firm’s behalf
• The procedures that members of your firm must follow when the media calls
• Record-keeping procedures for media calls and interviews
