    Monetizing Litigation -- Is it Always Bad? Is it Ever Ethical? And Do the Rules and the Statutes Answer Those Questions Clearly Enough (On-Demand CLE)

    The end of almost all litigation is to shift money from one person to another. During that time, you may find yourself shifting from being your clients' analyst/adviser to a lawyer form-draftsman. Does your signature on complaints or affidavits flip the switch on a machine that soon spits out a monetized judgment or, most often, quick settlement? This program will provide you with information about the ethics rules regulating lawyer behavior and shed light on lawyer-entrepreneurs who have built litigation money-machines.

    Litigation under some statutory schemes in which liability and damages are expressed in clear formulas (think statutory damages for copyright infringement, for instance), can make that money transfer an almost mechanical exercise, potentially reproducible on a large scale.

    Lawyer-entrepreneurs who realize this have built litigation money-machines – the patent and copyright trolling lawyers, for instance, and mortgage foreclosure robo-signing lawyers – but have also created bad publicity for themselves recently. But bad publicity does not necessarily prove unlawful or unethical conduct. Do the statutes creating these claims and the ethics rules regulating lawyer behavior generally make monetizing litigation wrong, and if not, should they?

    Join our panel as they focus on important topics such as:

    • Patent and copyright trolling cases
    • Mortgage foreclosure robo-signing lawyers
    • Statutes creating these claims
    • The ethics rules regulating lawyer behavior
