Ethical Challenges in Advising Corporate Boards and Committees

Ethical Challenges in Advising Corporate Boards and Committees

November 5, 2015

The emergence and growth of committees of boards of directors and their relationship to the full board and management raise ethical issues for in-house and outside counsel.  Traditional rules of ethics and the attorney-client privilege are being tested be the increasing demands and scrutiny being placed on directors in the current heavily regulated environment. Many boards are responding by becoming more aggressive in addressing complex matters, which raises new and unexplored legal ethics and privilege issues for attorneys advising boards and their committees.  This CLE program will explore these issues in the context of one or more hypotheticals based on real-world situations.
