Join the Litigation Team of Bradley for a two-hour interactive discussion focusing on ethical issues faced by in-house counsel. In-house counsel often face ethical considerations and pressures not faced by outside counsel.

The presentation will be both entertaining and informative:

  • Who is the in-house lawyer’s client?
  • What are common conflicts faced by in-house counsel and how should you deal with them?
  • How can in-house counsel preserve and protect the attorney-client privilege?
  • What ethical considerations are presented when responding to discovery?
  • What are in-house counsel’s ethical reporting obligations within the company?
  • What should counsel do to preserve documents within the company when litigation is anticipated?
