As a result of increased globalization and innovations in computer and internet technology, law firms and in-house legal departments are changing the way they provide legal services to their clients, including who in-house counsel hire to perform legal work, how law firms charge for services and fund their operations and cases, how lawyers communicate with clients and develop business, and how lawyers maintain, search for, and produce client files and information. In addition, individual lawyers are changing firms more frequently than ever before. These developments require careful consideration of ethical issues implicating fundamental professional duties, including the duties to maintain client confidences, represent clients zealously and avoid conflicts of interest.
We will address ethics issues relating to:
•Legal process outsourcing
•Law firm and litigation finance and alternative fee arrangements
•Social media and internet communications
•Cloud computing and data storage
•Lawyer hiring and lateral movement of lawyers
•Responding to crises and dealing with malpractice insurers
Thomson Hall is located on the 4th Floor at 195 Broadway, New York, NY 10007. Please be prepared to show identification when entering the building.
