The lawyers of Primerus have many things in common. Perhaps the most fundamental value we have in common is our belief in the Rule of Law. But what does that really mean, and where does it come from?  
Blindsided
B y: Jack Buchanan

“A shot across the bow.” Last Thursday, the stock market crashed again with the Dow falling 1861 points, the largest fall since the free fall of the market in March from a Dow high in mid-February of 29,551 to a low of 18,592 points. The headlines read: “Sudden renewed Coronavirus fears startled Wall Street and the White House.”

The Primerus Optimistic Index
Primerus is now at a neutral 6. The overall downward trend of the virus for the past several weeks has slowed due to an upsurge of cases in 19 states that may have opened too quickly and loosened behavioral restrictions too rapidly. The Dow's drop of 1861 points on Thursday, after a long and steady rise, signals Wall Street's fears of the Coronavirus' negative impact on the economy.

Thursday, June 25th - Into the Wind: Crisis & Litigation Communications During a Pandemic, Civil Unrest & Economic Uncertainty

2020 is as if 1918, 1929 and 1968 had all happened at once. The country is polarized; the pandemic changed forever how we look at work and what – and who — are essential; economic uncertainty is pervasive. The tragic death of George Floyd and the demonstrations and massive social movement immediately thereafter has instantly and fundamentally changed corporate identity and brand goals. Corporate neutrality is dead. Even prior to 2020, social media had already swallowed so many brands and reputations in a sea of anger and distrust that communicators already had to rethink strategy.
