Legal Q and A: Crisis! Come up with a plan before trouble starts


Michael C. Zisa

Published Date:


Michael C. Zisa, chair of Peckar & Abramson’s Surety and Construction Related Insurance Defense practice, and co-chair of the firm’s Crisis Management team, recently answered The Construction Broadsheet’s readers’ crisis management questions as part of the publication’s “Legal Q&A” feature.

The questions included: (1) Our firm is a general construction company involved in many projects, some high profile, some not, and we have been thinking about hiring a crisis manager, part-time at first. What experience/characteristics should we look for in this kind of professional and where do we start looking? and (2) We had a small fire on one of our projects, and, while no one was hurt and the property damage was minimal, the event caused chaos and panic. How do we start putting an emergency plan together for the future?
