This webinar discusses how rules relating to communication, conflicts, and candor are modified or expanded in the unique context of insolvency proceedings.

About the Series: 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 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.

About the Episode: Lawyers owe a wide variety of duties to their clients under generally applicable rules of ethics. What happens to those duties when the client intends to declare bankruptcy, or if the client is the representative of a bankrupt estate? Join us for a discussion of how rules relating to communication, conflicts, and candor are modified or expanded in the unique context of insolvency proceedings.
