On Tuesday, December 6, The New York City Bar Association is offering a program examining Ethical Boundaries for Litigators. The seminar begins at 6:00 p.m. and ends at 8:00 p.m. at the offices of the New York City Bar, 42 West 44th Street in Manhattan.

This program will address the differences between zealous advocacy, sharp practice and misconduct and the implications of each. The speakers will discuss real-life hypotheticals that will assist attorneys in managing problems that actually arise inside and outside the courtroom. Some areas that will be discussed include using evidence and presenting testimony that may be deemed suspicious; using subterfuge to investigate a case; forcing a settlement without crossing ethical lines; avoiding conflicts that could jeopardize representation; and protecting fees in litigation.

The program chair is Richard S. Malz, Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz, PC. The panelists are Naomi F. Goldstein, deputy chief counsel, Department of Disciplinary Committee, First Judicial Department; Katie M. Lachter, Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP; and Lewis F. Tesser, Tesser Ryan & Rochman LLP.
