This two-hour program featured speakers who shared actionable insights into legal ethics issues pulled from the front pages, with an emphasis on how in-house counsel can best navigate issues that arise during high-profile and politically charged criminal and civil investigations, congressional investigations, and related prosecutions.

  • Balancing duties of cooperation and candor with client interests and directions.
  • Preserving attorney-client privilege and work product protections.
