Description:
Corporate scandals make the headlines periodically, but businesses and the lawyers that work with them face ethical challenges every day, even in situations that are legally compliant. This webinar series examines ethical issues confronted by businesses in a variety of contexts, from so called “grey areas” to those involving outright corruption. The panels consider and recommend different approaches to ethical decision-making and the lawyer's role in advising business clients. Each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to business owners and executives without much background in these areas. Yet, each episode is proven to be valuable to seasoned professionals. As with all Financial Poise Webinars, each episode in the series brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. And, as with all Financial Poise Webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the episodes.

partners/supervisory lawyers, subordinate lawyers, non-lawyer assistance, independence, unauthorized practice of law, and multijurisdictional practice of law); and communication, including
advertising and solicitation of clients (Rules 7.1 through 7.5).
