Extinguishing an exploding nude-video scandal for a celebrity client is not something many lawyers get hired for very often.
Los Angeles attorney Marshall Grossman made headlines this week as the lawyer representing Erin Andrews, the ESPN reporter who was secretly videotaped through the peepholes in her hotel rooms. An insurance salesman was arrested last week in the case and charged with interstate stalking.
Grossman, who came to Bingham McCutchen in 2007 through the Alschuler Grossman merger, has had a few more stabs at representing celebrities than most, but even he said nothing prepares a lawyer for the tightrope maneuvers required to keep a client’s reputation in place. We chatted with him earlier this week to find out how you handle a case like this.
Stress and strategy, after the jump.
