This webinar presents basic practice pointers to avoid committing malpractice and disciplinary actions, and how to respond to claims of malpractice or unethical behavior.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) November 13, 2017
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. The LEGAL ETHICS – BEST PRACTICES 2017 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 third and final episode of the LEGAL ETHICS – BEST PRACTICES 2017 webinar series is How to Avoid Malpractice & Disciplinary Actions - General DOs and DON’Ts, airing on November 15th at 2pm CST (REGISTER HERE), and features host George Kuney of the University of Tennessee College of Law. He is joined by Professor Bernard Burk of the University of Arkansas, Michelle Gershfeld of the Law Offices of Michelle Gershfeld, and John Hicks of Baker Donelson to discuss ways in which to avoid malpractice and disciplinary actions.
This webinar presents basic practice pointers to avoid committing malpractice and disciplinary actions, and how to respond to claims of malpractice or unethical behavior. The panel also discusses the role that malpractice insurance plays in these situations and the ramifications of a malpractice judgment or disciplinary action. Model Rules discussed include: (a) those that govern the client-lawyer relationship (Rule 1.1 through 1.10; 1.13; and 1.16); (b) those that that speak to transactions with persons other than clients (Rule 4.1 through 4.4); Rules 5.1 through 5.5 (dealing with respective responsibilities of a partners/supervisory lawyers, subordinate lawyers, non-lawyer assistance, independence, unauthorized practice of law, and multijurisdictional practice of law); and communication, including advertising and solicitation of clients (Rules 7.1 through 7.5).
