Annual Ethics Seminar (Jacksonville)

Clients’ Past and Ongoing Misconduct

Thursday, October 11, 2018

The River Club
One Independent Drive, Suite 3500
Jacksonville, FL 32202

3 – 5:30 p.m. Program | 5:30 p.m. Reception

We are seeking 2 hours of ethics MCLE credits for this program.

During this event, the Association of Corporate Counsel North Florida Chapter will also hold a brief annual meeting. The chapter will elect 2018-19 officers and directors and will cover other general chapter business.

The North Florida ACC and McGuireWoods invite you and your colleagues to attend Tom Spahn's annual ethics program. This two-hour interactive presentation uses hypotheticals to explore lawyers’ confidentiality and disclosure duties in the context of clients’ past or ongoing misconduct.

Topics

  • Possible duty to disclose clients’ past fraud on tribunals, or past misconduct in noncorporate and corporate settings
  • Distinguishing between past and ongoing client misconduct (including fugitive clients)
  • Client crimes’ fruits and instrumentalities
  • Lawyers’ silence that causes anguish to victims’ families, or allows a wrongly convicted person to remain incarcerated
