Every day brings another story of a law firm, or one of its lawyers, accused of ethical misconduct, incompetence, or simply a lack of professionalism. Whether lawyers wind up paying a malpractice judgment or being sanctioned, or they only suffer embarrassment, there are costs. Accusations of wrongdoing often cost time and money to defend, provoke anxiety, and hurt lawyers' reputations. At the same time, practicing law in an overly defensive posture may disserve one's clients and impose other costs on the firm. How should lawyers in a firm anticipate avoidable problems? What risks are reasonable - and cost-effective - for lawyers to avoid? Professor Bruce Green, who chairs the New York City Bar's Committee on Professional Ethics, will moderate committee members' discussion of these questions, aiming to offer practical guidance on how law firms and their lawyers can to reduce liability, disciplinary and reputational risks.
