So many cases have legal component — what does that mean for PR?

When attorneys get involved in an organization’s business — either by suing or being sued by someone — what does that mean for stakeholder relations?  Does the entire organization switch into competitive, win-lose mode?  Does PR remain in the mix speaking out for the impact on the organization’s reputation and stakeholder relations?  It takes trust from management, a solid relationship with your legal team, a previous discussion of the pros and cons of any legal approach to the real bottom line.  How many cases in this book (and other case books) seem to balance on what is happening (or potential to happen) in the court of law that sways decisions and therefore outcomes — and not in a good way?
