Litigation Ethics Summit
Applying ethics rules to real-world litigation can be daunting. Your clients want you to push the limits. Technology speeds everything up. And every time you open the Law Journal it's filled with malpractice cases, fee battles, pay equity claims, disqualification motions and partnership disputes. To understand your obligations and manage all the risks you need to keep up with new rules and opinions.
That's why Frankfurt Kurnit hosts its inaugural 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 -- plus leading risk management and professionalism consultants -- will identify and explain the hot topics and what triggers your exposure. Attendees will receive up to 3.0 CLE credits -- including a credit in New York's new "diversity and inclusion" category -- at no cost.
