Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman Partner Tom Campbell says general counsel whose companies are facing crises will inevitably find themselves at the eye of the storm.
“The general counsel are the hub of the crisis management,” he says. “This is different, though, from being the hub of the emergency response. There are two groups: One that runs toward the fire, and one that runs back to the boardroom. The group that runs back to the boardroom is the crisis-management team.”
