Ethical Issues for Litigators: Beyond Civility
Civil Litigation | Original Program Date: February 4, 2015

Litigators face ethical issues on a daily, if not hourly, basis.  When faced with these issues, how do you best advocate for your client? 

For example: When do you raise settlement and how do you effect the best settlement possible? A case involving allegations of fraud may touch on criminal law issues requiring you to consider your client’s interests from a different perspective.  At some point most litigators will require an expert, but recent case law has made it unclear to what extent, and when, you can direct an expert or comment on an expert's report.

Whether you are a recent call or have significant practical experience, our panelists will pose difficult and interesting questions and offer practical guidance and insight into how they can best be answered.

  • What is the role of a litigator when retaining experts?
  • Ethical lessons from the criminal bar
  • What is a Mary Carter agreement and how can it best be used?
  • Dealing with difficult clients while maintaining professionalism
