This program will address duties to prospective clients, attorney impairment, conflict issues that can arise when an attorney desires to encourage clients to make charitable bequests to a nonprofit entity while simultaneously sitting on the board of that entity, and the disastrous fallout that can occur by being too lax with malpractice insurance applications. It will begin with the playing of a 9.5 minute video vignette entitled “Say What,” which will setup a few ethical issues that Mr. Bassingthwaighte and his guest claims attorney will then discuss.
A Sampling of Attendee Takeaways:
Ethical clarity on dealing with attorney impairments.
Practical ways to avoid being unintentionally tainted by a prospective client.
