Description: Executive compensation and employee benefits attorneys must know how to handle ethical dilemmas that often arise in this practice area. Understanding the rules and standards of conduct applicable to legal advisers and fiduciaries is particularly important given the public’s scrutiny of executive compensation and focus on the security of retirement income.

Join Practical Law and Andrew L. Oringer of Dechert LLP, Martha N. Steinman of Hogan Lovells and Marc Trevino of Sullivan & Cromwell for a 90-minute webinar providing guidance on ethical issues faced by employee benefits and executive compensation attorneys, including:

• Identifying the client.
• Determining whether it is possible to represent multiple constituents from one organization.
• Complying with additional regulations applicable to executive compensation attorneys of public companies.
• Understanding the attorney-client privilege, including the fiduciary exception.

Following the webinar, you will receive links via e-mail to the Practical Law resources listed below:

• Practice Note, Independence Standards: Compensation Committees
• Standard Document, Compensation Committee Charter
• Practice Note, ERISA Fiduciary Training
• Practice Note, ERISA Fiduciary Duties: Overview
