View an On Demand recording of this webinar.

To compete in today’s complex and global marketplace, companies are creative in their business formations, acquisitions, mergers and sales of business units. As a result, the need for legal services is a requirement. The ethical maze confronting outside and in-house counsel places both the attorney and company at great risk.

In addition, the use of increasingly sophisticated technology in litigation carries great risk and ethical challenges for attorneys and their organizations. Absent clear communication and proper discovery management, outside and in-house counsel may be exposed to sanctions for discovery abuse, destruction of evidence and perjury, as well as potential criminal penalties and perhaps government investigation. Increased settlements and adverse jury verdicts are also possibilities.

Join us for a webinar discussing how attorneys can improve their risk and litigation management, including the handling of discovery in litigation, to minimize their exposure.
