At this program, faculty members will use a hypothetical fact pattern to launch a wide ranging discussion of ethics problems that can arise when lawyers represent plaintiffs, defendants or insurers in connection with financial or securities litigation. The program will address questions involving conflicts of interest, preservation of attorney-client privilege, duties with respect to document preservation and production, and other important legal ethics issues. The course will be of interest to in-house counsel, plaintiffs’ and defendants’ counsel, insurance coverage counsel, and law firm attorneys involved in their firms’ loss prevention and risk management programs.
Topics to be discussed include:
•Lawyers’ simultaneous representation of multiple clients
•Joint defense privilege and common interest privilege
•Policyholders’ communications with brokers and insurers
•Insurance claims handling
•Differences between defense communications and coverage communications
•Collecting and producing documents
And much more.
