Quarles' Annual Legal Ethics Seminar
Please join Quarles for our annual year-end Legal Ethics Seminar featuring three, hour-long ethics CLE presentations.
The program will be presented from Quarles' Milwaukee office with live in-person simulcasts in our Chicago, Indianapolis, Madison, Naples, and Tampa offices. For guests who are unable to join us in person on November 10, or guests who prefer attending virtually, Quarles will host three CLE-eligible remote webinar replays on December 1, December 18, and January 9.
Our 2023 program will consider the following topics:
- Who is Your Judge? Ethical Traps in Litigation
Ethical traps often spring up in the course of litigation, including questions regarding payment to a witness beyond an expert witness fee, inadvertent disclosure, communications with a shareholder of a corporate opponent, conditions of settlement, false testimony from a witness, and contact with adversaries on social media. It is sometimes difficult to predict how different judges and jurisdictions will react in these scenarios, and this session will provide a practical approach to making the choices that are best for your client.
Presented by: Dan Conley, Shauna Manion, and Julia Wischmeier
- Ethical Considerations for Business Law Attorneys
Attorneys practicing business law face numerous ethical considerations in their transactional practice. This session will use real-life examples and hypotheticals to explore the ethical traps an attorney may face in their transactional practice, with a focus on potential pitfalls when negotiating agreements and communicating with the opposing party.
Presented by: Margaret Utterback, Morgan Hines, and Liz Lacey
- Legal Ethics Meets Generative AI Tools; What You Should Be Thinking About
The fast-evolving and emerging field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) presents lawyers and their clients with new legal and ethical challenges and it is important that attorneys keep up with this rapidly evolving technology and how they and their clients are using it. While the applications of AI are vast and evolving quickly, this session will address the likely ethical implications arising from AI in fields of litigation intellectual property now, and in the future.
Presented by: Stacy Alexejun, Zac Foster, and Johanna Wilbert
