CLE CREDITS:  1.0 ethics

Brought to you in partnership with WebCredenza
These telephone seminars are presented by national speakers who are experts in their areas of practice often ABA Section chairs, authors of books in their areas of practice, and heads of practice groups.

The first step in every ethics analysis is answering the question, who is your client?  It’s seemingly a very easy question to answer, but it’s not always 20/20 except in hindsight.  If you’re a private practitioner and you represent a corporation, partnership or a nonprofit association, your client may be the entity, its officers from whom you are taking directions, or possibly both. Direct conflicts of interests easily occur among these constituencies. If you are an in-house attorney, the analysis – and its implications for the attorney-client privilege – becomes even more complex. Representing multiple parties on the same matter, whether in litigation or on a transaction, may mean you have many clients, some or all with conflicts.  This program will provide you with a real world guide to ethics of identifying your client in a variety of settings avoiding conflicts of interest with the client.

  • Ethics and identifying your client and avoiding conflicts in transactions and litigation
  • Representing businesses entities, nonprofit associations, and the government – client v. person giving directions
  • Identifying clients in trust and estate planning – the testator or the person paying your fees?
  • Special ethical challenges and ethical risks for in-house counsel and attorney-client privilege issues
  • How to untangle clients and conflicts in joint representations – managing conflicts and information flows
  • Best practices in documenting client representation to avoid later challenge
