Ethical Considerations When Counseling the Corporate Client Through Crisis

Ethical Considerations When Counseling the Corporate Client Through Crisis

December 7, 2017

When the corporate client is facing a crisis - an internal investigation, government investigation, or discord between the board and the executive team, how does a lawyer manage ethical issues that arise?

This panel, which includes attorneys who have worked through these challenges and an ethics attorney who advises bar members, will discuss these ethical challenges focusing on:

  1. Identify the client - is it the organization, the board, or the executive team?
  2. Discuss how to manage conflicts of interest that often arise in these situations
  3. Ethical obligations when your client will not listen – where do you raise your concerns? Are you permitted to withdraw?
  4. Strategies for maintaining an effective client relationship

Panelists:

  • Suhuyini Abudulai (moderator), Cassels Brock, Toronto, ON
  • Margaret Cassidy, Cassidy Law, Washington, D.C.
  • Joan Meyers, Baker McKenzie, Washington, D.C.
  • Saul Singer, D.C. Bar Ethics, Washington, D.C.

Presented by: Corporate Compliance Committee
