    Navigating the Ethical Minefield When Lawyers Become Witnesses, Subjects, or Targets of Investigation [CC]

    1 PM EDT

    This program will focus on the ethical rules, privilege issues, and potential conflicts that arise when a lawyer becomes a witness, subject, or target of a federal investigation involving the lawyer's client. Panelists will explore a lawyer's obligations for safeguarding client confidences and maintaining the attorney-client privilege when the law firm is the recipient of a subpoena or search warrant, as well as potential conflicts of interest that may develop should the lawyer be charged, desire to cooperate, or wish to reveal client confidences. Finally, the program will cover the rules governing whether the lawyer may continue representing the client with respect to the conduct under investigation or other unrelated matters.

    This webinar will focus on the ethical rules, privilege issues, and potential conflicts that arise when a lawyer's work on behalf of a client becomes relevant to a federal investigation. When a lawyer becomes a witness, subject, or target of an investigation, the lawyer is thrust into the spotlight and develops personal interests that may conflict with the client's interests and the lawyer's ethical duties. What happens when the DOJ and other agencies appear to target lawyers and law firms for the issuance of subpoenas, the execution of search warrants, and even criminal charges?

    Panelists will explore ethical rules relating to a lawyer's obligations of candor toward the tribunal and an opposing party (RPC 3.3, 3.4), which become of heightened importance when the lawyer's client is providing testimony or information in connection with an investigation. They will cover a lawyer's obligations for safeguarding client confidences (RPC 1.6, 1.9, 1.18) and maintaining the attorney-client privilege (RPC 1.4), paramount when the law firm is the recipient of a subpoena or search warrant. Additionally, the webinar will explore potential conflicts of interest that may develop when the lawyer herself becomes a potential party to a criminal investigation (RPC 1.7, 1.8), including rules governing the circumstances under which the lawyer might cooperate or reveal client confidences (RPC 1.4, 1.6, 1.7). Finally, the panelists will explore the rules governing whether the lawyer may continue representing the client, either with respect to the conduct under investigation or with respect to other unrelated matters (RPC 1.7, 1.16, 3.7).
