The role of in-house counsel has become vastly more complicated in the decade since the Enron scandal.  Serving as the company's lawyer today means that one must clearly define what role he or she is playing at any given time, to avoid conflicts of interest and inadvertently compromising attorney-client privilege and work product protections.  Please join Seyfarth Shaw on Wednesday, April 18 for an interactive discussion of the ethics considerations that need to be top-of-mind for in-house counsel in today's business environment. 

We will utilize case studies and hypotheticals to take attendees through the specific ethical issues faced by in-house counsel, including:

  • Attorney-Client Privilege
  • Scope of Representation
  • SOX Whistleblower Litigation
  • Internal Investigations
  • Day-to-Day Ethical Considerations
