Ethical Issues Arising in Attorney-Client Relationships

This seminar will address the ethical considerations in dealing with clients and client relationships, such as issues relating to organization representations, manager and employee conflicts, confidentiality, and problems created by difficult clients on both sides of the bar. Although the focus is for employment lawyers, this topic easily translates across most practice areas and all are welcome.
