Devika Kewalramani will present the SABANY webinar Ethics-in-Place for Sheltered Lawyers on April 30th from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The Coronavirus Pandemic has dramatically impacted the legal landscape. In this unchartered law practice terrain, daily life and work routines are interrupted, deals and litigations are on hold, and clients and prospects are raising unique issues and novel concerns. Outside counsel, in-house lawyers and law firms are quickly adapting to working remotely on an extended basis, often using unfamiliar practice tools while seeking to effectively serve their clients and sustain their practices. But are lawyers and law firms keeping up with their ethical obligations? The presenter will spot the key ethical risks, highlight the relevant rules of professional conduct and bar association guidance, focus on lawyer incapacity, protecting client property, the duties of supervision, competence, communication and confidentiality, and suggest practical solutions to avoid ethical violations in these turbulent times.
