Your role as in-house employment counsel presents unique professional and ethical dilemmas. For instance, the attorney-client privilege protects confidential communications between lawyer and client from disclosure to third parties, generally. While this privilege may seem straightforward when outside counsel is involved, many nuances come into play when the privilege is applied in the context of in-house counsel communicating with their clients the corporation, directors, officers and other employees.

Unlike with government lawyers and law firm practitioners, the Model Rules of Professional Conduct provide fewer clear guidelines to help in-house counsel navigate the ethical landscape. Compliance for in-house counsel can be tricky, while the stakes for non-compliance are often higher for in-house counsel than others. This Webcast will explore ethical issues that may arise for you and prepare you for the challenges that lie ahead.
