Description: What information are we required to keep confidential?  What is the difference between the ethical duty of confidentiality, the attorney-client privilege, and the work product doctrine?  What are conflicts of interest?  How do we recognize conflicts of interest, and more importantly – what can we do when a conflict of interest arises in a case?  If you have ever wondered about the answers to these questions, then this seminar is for you.  In this presentation, we will explore the ethical rules that lawyers and legal professionals need to know in order to “stay on the right side of the line” when representing clients.  We will also discuss how to handle confidential information and will provide practical advice regarding how to communicate with clients, their families, friends and coworkers, consulting and testifying experts, and opposing counsel.
