Max, Bryan, and David will each provide a 20-minute overview of hot regulatory topics relating to, respectively, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, whistleblowers, and “joint employer” liability under a recent decision of the National Labor Relations Board.
When company witnesses receive a deposition notice, they frequently look to in-house counsel for advice, preparation, and guidance. Knowing what the ethical rules permit and prohibit is essential to effective deposition preparation and testimony. Andy’s presentation will give you what you need to answer your clients’ questions, ease their concerns, and prepare them to be confident and effective witnesses.
In-house lawyers play many different roles in negotiations – from lead negotiator, to adviser, to client. The ethical rules can be a trap for the uninformed – with problems often surfacing only after a deal goes bad. Mary Kay’s presentation will take you through the most common situations that trigger ethical concerns and give you practical guidance on applying the rules of our profession to the role of the lawyer-negotiator.
Steve and Jessie will provide you with their inside scoop on a number of the key corporate issues facing the firm’s clients, as well as their suggestions to be proactive on those issues to best support your GC and business partners – and especially your CEO!
After Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank, the already demanding ethical rules for in-house lawyers have become even more complicated. Dave’s presentation will help lawyers understand whether, when, and how they must change hats from confidential adviser to corporate whistleblower, from lawyer for the company to lawyer for an executive or subsidiary, from counselor to investigator, and from businessperson to lawyer. Along the way, Dave will address the practical problems of resolving conflicts, preserving the attorney-client privilege, communicating with adverse parties, and avoiding the unauthorized practice of law.
Bryan will address a variety of recurrent challenges when navigating through international borders. From working with regional affiliates and laws to determining when to hire local counsel, you'll learn how to meander around these potential snares with ease. An experienced woodsman, Bryan will offer case studies and helpful tips to spot - and avoid - potentially painful encounters.
