The program’s panel will discuss ongoing ethics developments in discovery of the growing mountain of digital information, focusing on text messages and voluntary disclosures on social media. The panel will also discuss ethical issues in joint defenses and common interest agreements, and a wide range of conflicts of interest developments. Settlement negotiations and what’s ethically permissible – and not – to communicate to adversaries will also be covered. This two-part program will provide you with a practical discussion of important ethics developments, including discovery of digital communications, conflicts of interest, settlement negotiations, the attorney-client privilege and more.
