WPG Partner Selected to Facilitate Upcoming Forum at the Counsel to Counsel Summit in San Francisco

The Wicker Park Group announced today that Martindale-Hubbell has selected Wicker Park Group partner Laura Meherg to lead a Counsel to Counsel Forum in conjunction with The Martindale-Hubbell® Counsel to Counsel Summit on “The Ethics of Social Media: Balancing Legal Implications and Practical Considerations” at The Four Seasons in San Francisco, CA on April 14, 2011.  When Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg became Time Magazine’s 2010 Person of the Year, we knew that social media was not just a flash in the pan.  Instead, not only is it here to stay, but it is increasingly becoming an issue that in-house counsel are dealing with in the workplace. Most companies are finding it necessary to at least consider social media policies and related approaches they should take.  In this session, we will explore topics such as:

  • To regulate or not to regulate?: Should all companies have social media policies, or does the analysis need to be more nuanced than that?
  • What conclusions to draw from the NLRB’s complaint against a Connecticut company that fired an employee for allegedly speaking poorly about the company on Facebook.
  • Are there benefits to not regulating the use of social media in the workplace?
  • The investigation and enforcement dilemma – best practices for enforcing social media policies and investigating alleged breaches of the policy.

These unique sessions provide corporate counsel with an opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue about the key issues they are facing. More information about this event can be obtained at
