Like communications between any client and attorney, communications between a client and tax practitioner may be covered by the attorney-client privilege. When a federal tax dispute arises, government officials often seek to obtain attorney-client communications such as letters, e-mails, and statements. To protect potentially prejudicial, confidential information, tax practitioners need a strong understanding of how attorney-client privilege and the work product doctrine apply in federal tax investigations and which communications, documents, and/or oral testimony must be produced when a subpoena is issued.

As a law practitioner in the 21st century, you likely have used the internet to do any or all of the following: communicate with current and prospective clients, other lawyers, and the public; conduct legal research; learn about the parties in a case; and overall enhance your legal knowledge and skills. Yet, the internet (and email and social media, in particular) is also a “virtual” minefield for ethical violations, with risks of inadvertently waiving attorney-client privilege, violating the duty of confidentiality, engaging in unlawful attorney advertising, and more. What are the common traps, and how can you keep yourself from falling in? View this essential CLE program on the ethics of email and social media so that you can learn how NOT to violate the rules of professional conduct from your office desktop or mobile device!

Designing a workable partner compensation system requires careful planning and skillful implementation. An effective plan should help your law firm attain the following goals: (1) enhance the ability of lawyers to provide high quality legal work; (2) reward extraordinary performance by business developers, over-achievers, rising “young stars,” and lawyer managers; (3) promote an atmosphere conducive to client service; (4) attract and retain qualified lawyers; (5) encourage efficiency through division of skills and utilization of expertise within the firm; and (6) improve the economics of the practice The challenge for your law firm management is to determine the relative value of each of these contributions in order to ensure that the system works by compensating your partners fairly and motivating them to perform these activities.

• Can you be retained by an audit committee or group of independent directors? • Can outside lawyers be adverse to one corporate family member while simultaneously representing another on an unrelated matter? • Do in-house lawyers automatically represent their corporate employer's affiliates? • Are a corporation’s shareholders also the corporate lawyer’s "clients"? Representing corporate clients – whether as in-house or outside counsel – is not always a straightforward matter. If you don’t know the answers to the above questions, watch this recorded, video webcast to explore the most basic question that all corporate counsel must be able to answer in the course of their representation: exactly who is your “client”?

Lawyers have a responsibility to ensure that clients understand the scope of, and any limitations on, their representation. Courts have recently clarified the responsibilities of lawyers in drafting engagement letters and in limiting the scope of their representation. This 60 minute CLE presentation focuses on the importance of clearly limiting the scope of a lawyer’s representation at the outset of representation. Additionally, this presentation outlines strategies for drafting engagement letters that accurately describe the scope of the attorney-client relationship.

The advantages of the partnership form are well known: for general forms, the entity does not have to pay income tax, they are relatively easy to set up, there is considerable flexibility in raising additional capital, and they allow for innovative management; and for limited partnerships, there are the added benefits of limited liability for each partner, and the ability of limited partners to share in profits and losses without direct participation in management. But there are also some perennial problems: joint and several liability of the partners; individual partner liability for debts and obligations; complications in transferring interests; squabbles over allocations. All of these problems—and more—can be anticipated in advance and resolved when they do arise.
