Some of the most overlooked challenges in today’s in-house counsel role are those regarding the ethics surrounding a successful in-house practice. The multiple roles required of in-house counsel and the nature of a corporate practice create potential conflicts and unique ethical challenges. In this ethics program, a panel of current and former in-house counsel will provide best practices and advice including how to:

  • Protect work product materials both in domestic and international transactions
  • Identify the corporate client and the limits of applicable privileges
  • Avoid the unauthorized practice of law when you provide advice to clients that cross multiple jurisdictions
  • Avoid blurring the line between legal and business advice

Registration: 3:00 – 3:30 p.m.
Panel Presentation: 3:30 – 5:00 p.m.
Reception* & Light Fare: 5:00 – 6:30 p.m.

The reception will feature a fireside chat on “Gender in the Legal Profession: The Shattered But Unbroken Glass Ceiling” with Ann Anaya, Global Diversity Officer at 3M, Luz Maria Frias, Executive Coach & Race Equity Strategist, and Anna Richo, SVP, General Counsel, Chief Compliance Officer, and Corporate Secretary, Cargill, Inc.
