Lawyers are trained to present the facts in a way to support the story of the client paying the bill. Even a seemingly innocuous text or email can be used to undermine an organization’s credibility during a lawsuit.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 06, 2016
Getting involved in a lawsuit isn’t typically on anyone’s list of New Year’s resolutions, but companies that aren’t careful about what their employees are texting and emailing may find themselves handing piles of evidence to opposing lawyers this year.
Nancy Singer, a former federal prosecutor who started her career enforcing FDA cases, is now available for 2016 dates to advise business leaders who want to protect themselves before pressing “send.” She says employees often have no idea their correspondence can be used as evidence in court.
In recent years, billion dollar fines have hit major companies, in part due to assumed expectations of privacy.
“Lawyers are trained to present the facts in a way to support the story of the client paying the bill. Even a seemingly innocuous text or email can be used to undermine an organization’s credibility during a lawsuit,” Singer said. “By walking business leaders through examples of thoughtless messages and how they could be used in court, it really sinks in.”
Singer has trained more than 1,700 people as president of Compliance-Alliance. She served as special counsel for the medical device industry’s trade association, and received Vice President Al Gore’s Reinventing Government Hammer Award for helping to improve communication between government and regulatory industries.
Singer’s presentations include training useful for any field:
•How sticky notes can cost millions
•18 words that attract the attention of prosecutors
•Meeting Notes: what to include and what to leave out
Starting in January, Singer is available for 2016 booking. For availability, email booking(at)compliance-alliance(dot)com.
