Agenda:

Deborah A. Ausburn, Partner,

and

Tom Rawlings, Counsel,

Taylor English Duma LLP

  1. The landscape has changed, illustrated by the SBC and Larry Nassar reports
  2. Law enforcement is becoming more aggressive about
    • Broadly defining “abuse”, and
    • Charging mandated reporters
  3. Lawyers advising their clients need to take a similarly broad view. When in doubt, report. Need to make sure that you have a consistent reporting structure and also that the structure doesn’t prevent an individual within the organization from making a direct report.
  4. We also need to help our clients respond after the mandated report
    • No longer enough to wait for law enforcement, and
    • We need to help clients plan ahead for crisis response
  5. We no longer can concentrate on defending potential lawsuits, but we have to help our clients with their entire mission of caring for children and families.
