Together with the Association of Corporate Counsel Connecticut Chapter (ACC Connecticut), Shipman & Goodwin is pleased to offer this complimentary CLE program detailing important ethical issues facing in-house counsel.

While there are certainly some similarities, there are also important differences in the day-to-day ethical concerns facing in-house lawyers relative to their private firm peers. The goal of this program is to identify key ethical issues of concern to in-house counsel and to discuss best practices for dealing with them. Topics, among others, will include:

  • Application of the Rules of Professional Responsibility to in-house counsel
  • Who is your client?
    • Employees, officers, directors and other constituents
    • Subsidiaries and affiliates
  • Managing Staff and Outside Counsel
    • Competence, diligence, communication and supervision
    • Outside counsel guidelines
  • Conflicts of Interest
    • Representation of company and individual employees
    • Affiliate companies
    • Conflicts between in-house lawyers and company/material limitation conflicts
  • Attorney-Client Privilege/Confidentiality
  • Unauthorized practice of law


The live (in person) portion of this program is now full. Please register for the webinar portion of the event by selecting “webinar participant” in your registration.
