Potential corporate wrongdoing and the internal investigations that companies conduct in response present in-house counsel with numerous complex problems and professional ethics challenges and pitfalls. Issues of client identification, confidentiality, privilege and waiver, up-the-ladder reporting and compliance, and other questions of professional responsibility swirl around internal investigations, particularly as the investigations evolve when new facts come to light.
This two-hour program presented by Hogan Lovells partners Tom Connally and Jon Talotta and Steven Siegel, Senior Investigations Counsel for Northrup Grumman Corporation, will explore the ethical issues in-house counsel face in internal investigations, surveying the rules of professional responsibility. Using hypotheticals, the presenters will focus on real-world experience and practical advice so that in-house counsel can recognize and proactively manage risks.
This program is a joint Hogan Lovells and Association of Corporate Counsel, National Capital Region event.
