Ethics for Transactional Lawyers 
Tuesday, August 20, 2019 - 12:00 pm to 01:00 pm 

Got ethics?

This program will explore ethical issues from a transactional lawyer's perspective.  Using the ABA's Model Rules of Professional conduct as a guide, we'll consider sticky situations that often arise in the course of negotiating and drafting contracts, like these:  

·         what is required for "competent" representation?

·         where does zealous representation cross into deception, and is deception ok?  

·         how one-sided should a contract be?

·         what if the opposing party drafts a contract that contains materially incorrect assumptions about the law or facts, but the incorrect assumptions benefit your client?

·         what if the opposing party is represented by counsel, but wants to discuss contract terms directly with you?

·         if you represented the seller in a merger, is the acquiror entitled to access your privileged communications?  
can you use the metadata in a contract drafted by opposing counsel? 

·         The following ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct are discussed:  1.1; 1.2; 1.4; 4.1; 4.2; 4.4; and 5.3, and more.
