Ethical Issues in Corporate Government Investigations
Thursday, May 9, 2019 | 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Using hypothetical fact patterns, the panel will discuss ethical issues that can arise during the course of government investigations and prosecutions of corporations, and it will discuss them from the vantage point of all attorneys involved in the process - defense counsel, prosecutors, and in-house counsel. The issues will include a lawyer’s ethical obligations to the client under NJRPC 1.13, 1.16, and 1.6; conflicts of interest (RPC 1.7 and 1.8); contacts with represented parties (RPC 4.2); dealing with potentially privileged information (RPC 4.4); supervision of subordinate attorneys and staff (RPC 5.1 and 5.3); an attorney’s duties when attempting to obtain evidence covertly (RPC 4.1 and 8.4(c)); and many others.
