Litigation Communications

Winning in the courtroom is just part of victory. Reputation and position before, during and after litigation is a critical factor of success.

Torrenzano works with clients and outside counsel to consider and advise on the company's public response to litigation --- regulatory, civil or criminal --- in communicating the company's position, anticipate plaintiff comments and attacks and manage media interaction.

The firm's extensive experience ranges from: defending the nation's most significant lawsuit seeking punitive damages…to helping companies navigate the treacherous waters of class action lawsuits, product liability and bankruptcies…to managing issues surrounding official misconduct, and labor or union actions.

With its extensive experience in helping organizations recover from the devastating effects of sexual misconduct and harassment, The Torrenzano Group has advised universities, religious institutions and corporations on preventing and -- when necessary -- responding to sexual harassment and misconduct allegations. They are experts on the Center for Disease Control’s handbook “Preventing Child Sexual Abuse Within Youth-serving Organizations: Getting Started on Policies and Procedures” and have guided many high-profile clients through cultural and procedural changes needed to protect youth.

Success Story: Protecting the Candle in the Wind

Issue: Cashing in on Tragedy
After the tragic death of Princess Diana in 1998, profiteers attempted to cash in on the heartache of a nation, family and its citizens. A company was selling goods not sanctioned by or benefiting The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund and her estate.

Goals: Doing what's Right
The goal was simple: Encourage the public to stop purchasing products not endorsed by The Diana Foundation.

Strategy: Take it to the Media
A suit was brought in U.S. District Court, by The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund's suit against the company. The Fund mounted a massive media campaign to stop the sale of unsponsored products.

Success: A Legacy Protected
Still reeling from the news of Princess Diana's death, the international media and public jumped on the story with a seeming obligation to protect Diana's legacy. The media campaign resulted in more than 250 broadcast stories and the Franklin Mint's discontinuation of the product line.
