The law firm McDermott Will & Emery has launched Legal Crisis Strategies, a blog devoted to legal crisis management. The blog will provide advice on “preventing, managing and ending a crisis while protecting a company’s reputation and limiting its legal liability.”

Notably for those in Massachusetts, one contributor to the blog is William F. Weld, the former two-term governor of this state. The blog’s three primary editors are Lanny J. Davis, a partner in McDermott’s Washington office; Eileen M. O’Connor, counsel in the Washington office and former broadcast journalist for CNN and ABC News; and Stephen M. Ryan, head of the firm’s Government Strategies Practice Group.

Just one post on the blog so far, aptly titled, The Dreaded Phone Call….
