Description: When lawyers discuss and advertise their prowess and successful representation of clients’ matters, they must be mindful of the ethical rules that surround such marketing activities, whatever the platform.
 
This CLE will examine the ethical perils that arise where imprecise comments about their own credentials and their clients’ matters appear in firm marketing material, such as the firm’s website or newsletters, or inadvertently end up in the press or on social media.
 
ABA Rules of Professional Conduct that will be covered during this CLE include Rules 1.6; 1.7; 3.6; 5.1; 5.3; 7.1; and 8.4(d).
