Join Alex Kaye, Robin Stephan and Nehal Siddiqui of Milbank Tweed Hadley and McCloy (http://www.milbank.com/) to discuss ethical considerations for in-house attorneys.
The New York Rules of Professional Conduct apply not only to attorneys working at law firms, but also those working in-house at public and private companies and non-profit organizations. In legal matters, the company itself -- and not its directors, officers or employees -- is the client of the lawyer. This can create tension for the in-house lawyer, who is responsible not only to the company, but also to one or more corporate officers or other executives as an employee. Without proper attention, the distinction may be blurred resulting in a conflict.
At this event, the presenters will discuss the issue of client identity, as well as conflict of interest, privilege, business relationships with the company, "no-contact" rule and other topics using real-world examples and illustrations.
The event will take place from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. at Milbank's New York office.
The course will be followed by a networking cocktail reception.
This course has been approved for 1.0 NY CLE Ethics credit.
Thank you in advance to Milbank Tweed and the presenters for what is sure to be an informative and broadly applicable discussion.
