Corporate scandals make the headlines periodically, but businesses and the lawyers that work with them face ethical challenges every day, even in situations that are legally compliant. This Financial Poise Webinar series examines ethical issues confronted by businesses in a variety of contexts, from so called “grey areas” to those involving outright corruption. The panels consider and recommend different approaches to ethical decision-making and the lawyer’s role in advising business clients.
The first episode of the series, Best Practice Regarding Technology, airs on September 27th at 1pm CST (Register Here) and features moderator Professor George Kuney of The University of Tennessee. He is joined by Professor Nancy Rapoport of UNLV, Professor Paula Schaefer of the University of Tennessee, and Lisa Vandesteeg of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer.
Technology is rapidly changing the way that lawyers and businesses interact (e.g. email; data rooms). This creates new and different challenges to confidentiality, attorney-client privilege and the creation of a detailed record of negotiations and interactions. This webinar will describe the problems and some solutions that arise out of the changing manner and pace of business law practice.
The LEGAL ETHICS – BEST PRACTICES 2017 series is sponsored by EisnerAmper. Future episodes in the series include “Hot Off the Press- Recent Cases & Decisions,” airing on October 25th and “How to Avoid Malpractice & Disciplinary Actions – General Do’s and Don’ts,” airing on November 15th. All episodes will be available live through West LegalEdcenter and then on-demand following the live premiere.
Each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to business owners and executives without much background in these areas. Yet, each episode is proven to be valuable to seasoned professionals. As with all Financial Poise Webinars, each episode in the series brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. And, as with all Financial Poise Webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the episodes.
