Event summary

Webinar presented by Cooley lawyers Chris Stack and Helen Connolly. Many mature venture-backed companies have expanded rapidly in the last few years and given recent market developments, may now need to make some challenging personnel decisions, a new experience for many companies. To help our clients and friends in the ecosystem manage through potential personnel reductions, we are hosting a confidential webinar to discuss how larger companies can best manage these often complex and multinational challenges.

Topics discussed

  • Preparation – Who needs to be brought into the discussion internally?
  • Process –  If local counsel are needed, how best to coordinate them across a multinational process.
  • Timing/messaging –  Do all countries act at once? How are redundancies best announced, creating a unified message globally, while planning for different legal processes in different jurisdictions?
  • Risks –  How to manage the potential tension between legal compliance with “consultation” versus protection of company systems and confidential information.
  • PR – Do you need an agency on board? How to manage social media. Who should speak on behalf of the company?
