A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of the October 2015 webcast, Tom Spahn on Confidentiality: Exceptions to the Duty.
This two-hour interactive program will continue the exploration one of our profession's core duties—maintaining client confidences. Specifically, the program will explore the exceptions to lawyers' confidentiality duty. Using hypotheticals, the program will address, among other things, lawyers disclosing client confidential information: in the context of joint representations and common interest agreements; when complying with laws or court orders; in clearing conflicts of interest on a daily basis and when hiring laterals; when defending themselves from clients' and non-clients' claims or criticism; and in seeking to collect their fees or withdraw as counsel of record.
Tom Spahn’s reputation as the expert on ethics is well deserved. What isn’t as evident from his résumé is how good he is as a lecturer: enlightening and engaging, yet always focused on relevant, real-world problems and their solutions.
If you’re a “regular” at Tom’s seminars, you’ll not want to miss this offering. If you haven’t attended his seminars before, join us to see what you have been missing.
This is the second part of what will be a multi-part seminar on all aspects of confidentiality. Part I, Confidentiality: The Scope and Strength of the Duty, was presented in 2014 and is still available in our online archive. Look for the next installment in 2016.
