Frankfurt Kurnit’s Third Annual Litigation Ethics Summit Webinar
Applying ethics rules during litigation is hard in normal times. Applying ethics rules in times of upheaval and downward pressure on fees is even harder. How has work-from-home increased compliance risk? How should we handle aggressive opposing counsel? Where’s the line between lying and puffery in settlement discussions? How can firms and clients ethically deploy litigation funding sources in a down economy? To understand your obligations and manage these and other risks you need to keep up with new rules and opinions.
That's why Frankfurt Kurnit is hosting its Third Annual Litigation Ethics Summit -- a complimentary CLE for corporate counsel, law firm general counsel, partners with responsibility for law firm compliance and risk management, and other lawyers with interest in professional responsibility issues.
Our accomplished litigation ethics practitioners will identify and explain the hot topics and what triggers your exposure. Attendees will receive up to 3.0 New York and California CLE credits -- at no cost.
When: November 13th, 2020 from 12:30PM to 4:00PM
