Jillian Berman and Frank Wohl Co-Chair CLE on Ethics in Investigations
On September 14, LSW Partners Frank Wohl and Jillian Berman co-chaired a panel of white-collar practitioners from both sides of the aisle for a sophisticated and spirited exploration of ethical quandaries that attorneys may face during an investigation of suspected corporate misconduct.
The seminar-style event is an annual tradition at the New York City Bar Association, and raises new and timely issues for discussion in each successive iteration. Viewers zoomed in for the panel’s analysis of the questions raised in a thought-provoking video hypothetical produced by, and starring, lawyers from Lankler Siffert & Wohl.
This year’s program devotes special attention to issues that arise in connection with joint representations, including conflicts of interest; common interest agreements; privilege assertions; and data security issues.
The panel participants this year were:
- Richard Albert — Principal, Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello
- Bruce Green — Law Professor and Director Louis Stein Center for Law and Ethics, Fordham Law School
- Andrea Griswold — AUSA, Chief Counsel to the US Attorney, USAO SDNY
- Joan Loughnane — Partner, Sidley Austin LLP
- Tai Park — Partner, Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan
- Karen Seymour — Partner, Sullivan & Cromwell LLP
The audience for the livestream consisted of lawyers in private practice at all levels of seniority as well as members of in house counsel departments. To the delight of the presenters, program reviews have been excellent.
The program earns 3 ethics credits in multiple jurisdictions, and is available on demand here.
