    The application of legal ethics rules to the transactional practice can be complex and bewildering, even to experts. This program is designed to assist good business lawyers who have little time or inclination to study the ethics rules to spot issues and seek help where appropriate.

    Topics include:

    • Conflict of Interest: What should business lawyers consider when taking on new clients, particularly involving entities and multiple parties?
    • Negotiation Ethics: How far can a business lawyer go in extolling his client's business or the value of an important asset?
    • Client Fraud: The business client appears to be up to something fishy. Does that have any consequences for the lawyer?
    • Communication with Represented Parties: When can a business lawyer communicate with officers or employees of other parties in a transaction? When can a lawyer counsel her client to do so?
