KALAGNY – 2016 NAPABA Northeast Regional Conference
Ethical Consideration for In-House Attorneys
In-House Attorneys serve dual roles in that they act as both attorneys for their respective companies, as well as clients in working with outside counsel. As such in-house attorneys have added responsibilities to keenly understand ethical issues both as attorneys and clients. Seasoned panelists will consider and discuss issues such as who the client is, escalating potential issues/violations, and attorney client privilege/work product from both in-house and outside counsel perspectives.
