Whether running internal investigations or negotiating mergers, in-house counsel are assuming roles that were traditionally filled by outside counsel. While using in-house counsel can improve the company’s bottom line, it also raises unique privilege and ethical issues. Who is the client? Are all communications with the client privileged? When is in-house counsel acting as an attorney and when is he/she acting in a business capacity? The speakers will explore how in-house counsel can avoid traps when conducting investigations, negotiating transactions and working overseas, including an overview of ABA Model Rules 1.6, 1.7 and 1.13.
