NYCLA To Replay Seminar On Ethics For Corporate Lawyers

Thursday, March 1, 2007 - 00:00

The New York County Lawyers' Association (NYCLA) is offering a video replay of a CLE seminar titled Breakfast With NYCLA - Emerging Ethical Issues for the Corporate Lawyer.

The program will take place on Tuesday, March 20 and Wednesday, March 21 from 8:30 to 10 a.m. each day at the NYCLA Home of Law, 14 Vesey Street, New York City.

Using a hypothetical case study, the panel sorts out the minefield of emerging ethical issues, including how to address misconduct within the corporate organization; protection of the corporate client's attorney-client and work product privileges; implications of the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation; limitations on the attorney's efforts on behalf of the corporate client; the implications of the no-deceit mandate; the pitfalls of multi-jurisdictional lawyering and the unauthorized practice of law, and the dangers of business entanglements between corporate counsel and the corporate client.

Among the speakers are Andral N. Bratton, deputy chief counsel, Departmental Disciplinary Committee, First New York Judicial Department; Howard Ellins, Davis Polk & Wardwell, and Katherine Failla, Assistant U.S. Attorney, Southern District of New York.
