3: What will I learn in this Expert Training Session?

Many of the attorneys we work with are just not sure what to do with social media and their law practice team. Just a few of the questions we field are:

  • Should employees be encouraged to interact with the law firm social media?
  • Can employees be stopped from using social media at work?
  • What if your employee complains about the firm? Or a client? How should you handle it?
  • Can employees post questionable photos while at work?
  • Should employees be allowed to say they work for you at all?
  • If you’re interviewing a potential employee, should you look at social media? Can you make a decision not to hire based on what you find?
  • If an employee runs all your social media accounts and quits, who owns really owns these accounts?

If any of these questions, or more, have crossed your mind, this is the presentation for you. We’ve all heard the motto…”the best defense is a good offense”…and never is that more true than when it comes to creating policies to protect your firm. Don’t leave your firm unprotected when it comes to social media!
