Overview (Program Summary)

Agenda:
 
Tuesday, December 1 @ 9:00 a.m. to 10 a.m. (Schnader) — Ethical Issues in Employment Law and Beyond

Businesses face a wide range of ethical issues related to employment law. It can help business leaders and in-house counsel to focus on two key aspects of these issues – technology and internal investigations. Technology presents ethical questions involving the nature of information shared in electronic form, the confidentiality of electronically stored information, the risk of cyber intrusion, and protecting attorney-client communications. Internal investigations, both when required by law and used to assess and remediate potential problems, present ethical questions involving the initial authority, structure and staffing of the investigation, as well as clarifying and communicating the identity of the “client(s)” for the investigation and managing these relationships. This session will provide practical examples and best practices for these issues and more.


Tuesday, December 1 @ 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (Ballard Spahr) — Corporate Political Participation in a Hyper Partisan World

This program will discuss navigating the applicable laws and regulations related to corporate political contributions, and how political participation may create liability for companies.


Wednesday, December 2 @ 9:00 a.m. to 10 a.m. (CSC) — Ethical Considerations With Technology Contracts

Ethical issues and technology contracts can present in-house attorneys with unique ethical challenges.  This program reviews ethical issues that arise with technology contracts and will include considerations of internal processes and compliance and discuss contract negotiations and provisions.

Thursday, December 3 @ 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (Buchanan) — Do Your Employees Think You Are Their Lawyer?  How to Avoid and Manage Ethical Issues with Employees

From internal investigations to outside litigation, the question of who is representing whom can pose ethical challenges. We will consider common scenarios, the role of in-house and outside counsel, Upjohn warnings and other relevant rules and case law to consider when your employee is a witness, a joint defendant, or just wants some legal advice.


Thursday, December 3 @ 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Duane Morris) — Ethics and the Challenges of Working Remotely
