Description: The front page and business section headlines have been filled with news recently about the Hewlett-Packard "pretexting" scandal, and the role of the company's in-house and outside general counsel. Other headlines announce a spate of investigations of corporate "gifts" to CEOs and other executives in the form of colorable "back-dated" stock options.  In many cases, allegations are being made that lawyers either blessed or turned a blind eye to practices that were at best questionable, and at worst illegal.  The implementation of the landmark Sarbanes-Oxley Act and heightened standards of corporate ethics were

supposed to add transparency and integrity to corporate governance, as well as a stricter professional responsibility ethic for business lawyers and in-house counsel.  Our expert faculty will walk you through these ethical minefields and offers practical solutions to these increasingly common dilemmas.


Topics include: 


  • Who really is your client?  The web of potential conflicts of interest in the corporate setting  
  • Sarbanes-Oxley and state disciplinary “reporting up the ladder” rules 
  • Conducting internal investigations and the pitfalls of "posing," "pretexting" and surveillance of corporate constituents 
  • Attorney-Client privilege 
  • Lessons from Hewlett-Packard, United Health Care and other corporate scandals
