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.

Lawyers must be truthful. Yet they must be zealous in the representation of their clients. The tension between these two principles is perhaps never as great as when the lawyer is negotiating for a client. The negotiation may be a settlement of litigation or in connection with a transaction. The lawyer may make statements about the law or fact – or simply refrain from making statements because the lawyer knows certain facts or legal precedent are adverse to his or her client’s interest. Lawyers may also “puff” or boast, signaling that a negotiating stance is firmer than a client’s true position or more substantively valid than the law can reasonably support. At some point, the gray ethical line is tripped and what the lawyer does becomes improper. This program will provide you with a real world guide to ethical issues in lawyer negotiations. 

  • Ethics and ethical drawing lines – what’s an acceptable level of deception in negotiations?
  • Affirmative statements of fact, value or intent in settlements
  • ·Silence about adverse law in negotiations
  • Silence about facts unknown to an opponent or counter-party
  • Silence about errors in settlement agreements or transactional documents
  • Non-litigation work in another state  – “temporary” practice
