NEW YORK: The relationship between PR and legal is the topic of the next PRWeek/ Peppercom "Closing the Gap" breakfast panel.

PR and legal advisers, whether in-house or with professional firms, will often find themselves at odds over issues facing a corporation, including giving out information during a crisis, financial communications, and litigation PR.

This panel, third in a series of four, aims to provide insights into strategies for cultivating more productive and aligned relationships between these functions.

Among those pros who will discuss these topics are Thomas Buckmaster, VP for corporate communications at Honeywell International; Tom Glover, director of public relations at ITT Industries; Vince Maffeo, SVP and general counsel at ITT Industries; Harlan Loeb, director of litigation at Hill & Knowlton; Kevin Sullivan, VP of corporate relations at Allstate; and Jackie Kolek, partner & senior director at Peppercom.

Previous discussions have examined the relationship between PR and sales and PR and procurement departments.

The breakfast will take place at 8am on Thursday, September 23 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.
