Ethics for Transactional Lawyers - 1 CLE hour, including 1 Ethics hour

Representing parties in transactions – business, commercial, or real estate – presents a wide range of ethical issues.  Foremost may be identifying your client when an entity and its owners both want you to represent them in a deal – or managing the inherent conflict through disclosure and waivers. There are also issues when a client offers you an economic piece of a transaction that potentially causes a conflict between your role as lawyer and your personal financial interests.  Sitting on boards of directors also gives rise to a conflict of interest in the differing “hats” a lawyer wears.  Communications and negotiations with unrepresented parties also present substantial ethical perils. Effectively managing these and other ethical issues can be the difference between a successful representation and ethics complaints.  This program will provide you with a wide-ranging discussion of ethics issue for transactional lawyers.  

Ethical issues for transactional lawyers 
Doing business with clients – and the conflicts between roles as lawyer and market participant
Identifying your client – representing a closely-held company and its owners in a transaction
Serving on boards – lawyer as legal adviser v. lawyer as fiduciary to company owners 
Communications and negotiations with unrepresented parties – what can you say?
Client misconduct – must you report up and/or out?
