    As cross-border and global business issues become more common, many law firms face, for the first time, the challenges and opportunities of acting for new foreign clients. Even law firms that already do cross-border legal work encounter new and different expectations from new clients from the other side of the world, where local customs, business and professional ethics, and legal practices may differ profoundly from the firms’ previous experience with clients from neighboring countries or one of the major business centers.

    At the conclusion of this session, you will be able to:

    • Identify and describe approaches and responses to professional ethics issues in the cross-border representation of clients, as they apply to your practice
    • Integrate the values, customs, and client service expectations arising from the business and professional cultures of your foreign clients in ways that mitigate or eliminate the risks of errors and inefficiencies in the delivery of legal services to or on behalf of each such foreign client
