COURSE DESCRIPTION

Substantial ethics issues flow from the moment an attorney-client relationship is formed, whether it is formed intentionally or through inadvertence.  Determining when a relationship commences and the scope of the representation has dramatic implications for issues related to confidentiality, conflicts of interest, the attorney-client privilege and more. Ending an engagement is nearly as complicated. When are you allowed to end an engagement?  And how must you go about it without prejudicing a client’s interest in a transaction or in litigation? This program will you provide a real-world guide the ethical issues of beginning and ending an attorney client relationship.

  • Determining when and how a relationship starts – including through inadvertence
  • Email and technology issues – how unsolicited communications may trigger ethical obligations
  • Joint representation issues – unsorting the confidentiality and privilege issues
  • End a relationship – when are you allowed to end an engagement?  How do you do it ethically?
  • Circumstances when you might be required to end a relationship
