Jon Strauss, will be leading a panel discussion CLE entitled: Workplace Active Shooters: Lawyers Preparing for and Responding to the Unimaginable
On February 18, 2019, Sapientia attorney, Jon Strauss, will be leading a panel discussion CLE entitled: Workplace Active Shooters: Lawyers Preparing for and Responding to the Unimaginable. The class will be held during the National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms’ Driving Diversity and Leadership Conference in New Orleans. Jon, an experienced commercial litigator who has worked with clients on reconstructing catastrophic scenes where injuries and deaths have occurred, will be chairing a panel that also includes Gregg McCrary, a former FBI agent who now works for the Threat Assessment Group; Maureen Deskin, General Counsel for Ocean Properties, Ltd., the largest privately held hotel company in North America; Christopher Knopik, Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel for the Laser Spine Institute; Paul Logan, principal at the Physical Security Architects; and Ashley Larson, of Sutton Booker P.C., who has experience assisting clients with crisis management and investigations of workplace shootings. Jon hopes this CLE will help lawyers better prepare their clients to take measure to discourage active shooters, train employees for handling a shooter should they appear on the premises, and to address of the aftermath should such a horrible situation occur.
