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.

Most multi-member LLCs, general partnerships and limited partnerships are taxable as partnerships under Subchapter K of the Internal Revenue Code. Partnership taxation provides these entities with unique federal tax advantages but also with significant tax risks. Even if you do not provide tax advice to your clients, you should have a basic understanding of partnership tax opportunities and risks in drafting partnership agreements for these entities and in handling transactions in which they are involved.

There have always been high-profile cases of sexual harassment and sexual assault involving entertainers and politicians. To those out of the loop they seemed like one-off cases of misbehavior, sleaze, or violent criminal conduct. People in the loop knew better. It was systemic and considered business as usual. Allegations were dealt with quietly or ignored. Women were told that speaking out meant getting out of the business. But the predatory behavior alleged against movie producer Harvey Weinstein broke the dam. The allegations brought against him were quickly followed by allegations against others in the entertainment industry which were quickly followed by allegations against a string of politicians and news professionals. Legends and heroes fell, one after the other, in seemingly daily reports of details that went from bad to worse. What is the culture like in your organization?

The recent wave of high-profile sexual harassment allegations in the news and the increasing number of people telling their workplace harassment stories on social media make it clear that employers, boards of directors, and even your own firm must develop effective policies addressing harassment and take proactive measures to prevent it in the first place. Whether you are advising employers, serving on a board of directors or reviewing your own firm's policies you need to know what steps to take to effectively respond to serious allegations. Sexual harassment allegations can result in costly and damaging lawsuits for your clients. Now more than ever, employers need comprehensive policies and clear reporting procedures, including education on sexual harassment awareness and prevention detailing what is and is not appropriate, to create a healthy workplace and reduce exposure to litigation.

This video webcast on legal issues in nonprofit affiliations, joint ventures, and mergers will help you think strategically and critically about potential collaborations, while highlighting the important legal considerations and key changes these kinds of collaborations bring with them.

Gone are the days when you could run to the mailbox to snatch back a letter that contained wrong or confidential information. No longer do you have the extra time to express your thoughts because you weren't yet near a phone. Whether because it's expected or because you can, you answer quickly. That increases the risk of accidentally revealing private information and decreases the time you have to catch them before they do their damage. In the practice of law -- in communications between inside and outside counsel -- this can cause serious trouble for cases and careers. In this recorded webinar our speakers will discuss the tactical and ethical risks associated with rapid digital communications tools, from email to texts to mobile message apps.
