Organization as Client: What Really are a Lawyer's Duties?
In the 2003 post-Enron environment, Model Rule 1.13 was amended to require a lawyer representing organizations to act on knowledge of constituent misconduct and to permit the lawyer to disclose such misconduct outside the entity in some circumstances. This panel will review the five-year impact of these changes and explore how lawyers might better respond to these new duties.
