Mr. Prutschi joins Jerry Agar on NewsTalk1010 to discuss this topic of how lawyers can assist their high-profile clients in the face of uncontrolled and persisted speculation in the mass media. When a scandal or allegation of a well-known individual or corporation hits the airwaves and spreads like wildfire, the legal team of the accused must “bunker down” and be open and transparent with one another, Mr. Prutschi recommends.
Mr. Prutschi, who has worked on many high-profile cases, discusses how crucial it is for clients to be completely honest with their lawyers from the start. In order to provide best representation, lawyers need to know all the intricacies and inner-workings of your case. While it is counter-intuitive, Mr. Prutschi concedes, clients must not shield their lawyers from any details in their case – no matter how embarrassing or incriminating – or it will impede your lawyers from doing their best job representing you.
