Restrictions on Practice/Client Indemnity & Other Troublesome Terms in Outside Counsel Guidelines

Moderator:  Monte Lemann 
Panelists:    Anthony E. Davis, Laura Giokas, Stuart Pattison

No issue torments in-house law firm ethics lawyers more these days that the rising tide of outside counsel guidelines and their increasingly detailed requirements. Client demands concerning cybersecurity and IT audits, specific definitions of conflicts of interest broader than the ethics rules, definitions of clients that stretch over entire corporate families and even co-joint venturers, bans on representing competitors, HIPAA business associate agreements - each needs to be identified, decoded, considered, responded to, and sometimes negotiated, all during the first flush of lawyer-client infatuation. Our panel of experienced practitioners will dissect the current environment of demands, responses, and solutions.
