Training Course Syllabus:


Forestall Allegations of Impropriety With Our Proactive Methods


Possibly the favorite pastime of clients who don´t receive the judgment they´d hoped for is to sue their attorneys for malpractice. Allegations are on the rise and nobody is immune. Having a firm foundation in client relations ethics - plus a few proactive strategies - can mean the difference between a productive, positive client relationship and a nightmare of accusations and animosity.


At this insightful half-day seminar, our top-notch speakers will share savvy strategies you can use to head malpractice suits off at the pass. You´ll get a clearer understanding of one of the murkiest ethical issues - conflicts of interest - and find out what you can do to avoid them. Explore how cutting edge technology has rocked - and nearly capsized - the boat of attorney-client privilege. This is an authoritative seminar you won´t want to miss!


•  Recognize the red flags that point to a potentially troublesome client.


•  Find out which transactions are prohibited and how to say no if a client suggests one.


•  Learn how to communicate the boundaries of your scope of representation.


•  Understand how to confidently identify and avoid conflicts of interest.


•  Explore the unique nature and responsibilities of the attorney-client relationship.


•  Take a closer look at how technology has heightened the vulnerability of attorney-client privilege.


•  Assess the security of your communications and discover how you measure up when considering "reasonable expectations of confidentiality."
