Ethical Conundrums in Cross-Border Corporate Investigations

In the ever-expanding field of corporate investigations, some of the thorniest issues arise not only at home, but also abroad. Partners Robert J. Anello and Benjamin S. Fischer and associate Kostya Lantsman of New York litigation boutique and white collar law firm, Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello P.C., discuss recent developments in cross-border corporate investigations and the ethical conundrums posed to in-house and outside counsel. Topics covered include the limits of prosecutors’ ability to rely on foreign compelled testimony, the limits for electronic surveillance and searches in the U.S. and abroad, and the complexities presented by the differences in recognition of the corporate attorney-client privilege particularly as it relates to in-house counsel across various jurisdictions. ABA Model Rules and other ethical authorities related to these issues and covered in the program include: Rule 1.1 Competence; Rule 1.7 Conflict Of Interest: Current Clients; Rule 1.13 Organization As Client; Rule 2.1 Advisor; Rule 4.1 Truthfulness In Statements To Others; Rule 4.3 Dealing With Unrepresented Person; and New York City Bar FORMAL OPINION 2017-5: An Attorney’s Ethical Duties Regarding U.S. Border Searches of Electronic Devices Containing Clients’ Confidential Information.
