Mistakes: Coping Ethically and Wisely with the Inevitable

(Grand Ballroom D/E, 4th Floor)

Thursday, June 1 
(2:00pm - 3:20pm)

Moderator:  Peter R. Jarvis
Panelists:    Jeanne Marie Clavere, Douglas Richmond

Lawyers make mistakes. Some are harmless; some are fatal; others fall in between. Dealing with them raises issues of how and when to report them to the client, insurance carriers, and maybe disciplinary counsel. Not to mention, what exactly must or should a lawyer report?  Further, may a lawyer continue to represent the client? Should she? What if the lawyer can fix the problem? Or hire someone else to fix it? A panel of expert loss prevention lawyers, carrier representatives, and professional responsibility counsel will address all these questions.
