Description

Litigators routinely face ethical dilemmas – whether in dealings with opposing or co-counsel; throughout the course of discovery; with clients who are difficult or who lie during a deposition; or in determining what to say or how hard to push during a settlement negotiation. This program provides a whirlwind tour of many areas of potential liability for litigators. The applicable rules, ethics opinions, and relevant case law will be examined to provide guidance and practice pointers on real-world scenarios. Register today to avoid the ethical traps before you fall in! A faculty of experienced litigators, including a former federal magistrate judge, will discuss: • Competence in handling ESI • Duty to supervise other lawyers, as well as non-lawyer staff and consultants • Respective roles of in-house and retained counsel • Respective roles of local and pro hac vice counsel • What “cooperation” means and what are its limits under Rules 26(c), 26(f) and 37(a) • Protecting attorney-client privilege, work product, and confidentiality • Dealing with “problem” opposing counsel and clients • Representations to other counsel and the Courts • Client misrepresentations at depositions and trials • Permissible conduct at settlement conferences
