Navigating the Ethical Maelstroms When the Law Firm Ship is Going Down

Navigating the Ethical Maelstroms When the Law Firm Ship is Going Down

June 9, 2016

The profession has seen a number of law firms dissolve in the last few decades. When law firms fail, a number of ethical and risk management issues surface that require careful and conscious planning to successfully navigate. These issues relate to everything from client property and client files, to conflicts of interest, client confidentiality, billing and collection of legal fees, and migration of lawyers and staff. This program will address many of these issues by reviewing hypotheticals to pose rules-based and practical solutions to ethical issues.
