In the Spotlight: Effective Strategies to Avoid Ethics Violations When Practicing Virtually (04/07/2021)

Program Number: 3176 Presenter: Francine Friedman Griesing, Esq.

The good old days when we worked in person, used real documents, and appeared in person for depositions, meetings and court are in the past. The recent changes due to Covid-19 and the necessity of working remotely have further revolutionized the legal profession. Technology makes it easier to generate documents and electronic communications, increased the use of remote operations, and enabled us to participate in legal proceedings from a personal device rather than in person. Due to recent events, the legal profession has been forced to pivot to rely on remote proceedings. Whether we are attending meetings, conducting depositions, interviewing witnesses, arguing before judicial officers or mediating a dispute, we are likely doing it over a virtual platform. Even after we resume primarily in person practice, the cost savings and ease of practicing remotely will likely keep these processes in place. In this program, we will discuss effective ways to

Program Number: 3168 Presenter: Glynna K. Christian, Esq., Jeffrey R. Seul, Esq.

Turning your Rooftops into Gold Mines (03/05/2021)

Program Number: 3138 Presenter: Michael J. Watza, Esq.

If you are a property owner, and particularly an owner of multi-story commercial properties, join us for a discussion of the explosive growth of wireless cell towers, the industry need for rooftops (and other property sites) to build them on, and how to turn their need into substantial revenue for you. And, if you have existing cellular facilities on your property, you have likely already been approached by the wireless industry on this topic, and so you are probably aware of their effort to extend current agreements, access additional easements for facility upgrades and, reduce leasing costs by suggesting that “the industry and technology is changing” and unless you reduce our lease costs, we may remove our facilities and leave you with nothing”. – Don’t believe it. Join us and learn how to respond to that nonsense.

Is Financial Crime Going Viral? Money Laundering, Fraud and Ponzi Schemes in the Pandemic Era (01/26/2021)

Program Number: 3136 Presenter: Ross S. Delston, Timothy Dunfey, Esq.

Financial crime is a constant whatever the era but in times of crisis criminals become even more creative. Coronavirus ‘cures’, PPEs, testing and vaccines all present attractive opportunities for fraudsters to take advantage of our collective anxiety by selling fakery. Ponzi schemes, a ubiquitous phenomenon, often come to light in times of financial crisis since old investors demand redemption and new investors are hard for fraudsters to find. Finally, in the pandemic, trade-based money laundering, another common criminal scheme, can be used to greater effect due to price gyrations and scarcity in previously available goods and commodities. Learning Objectives: • Distinctions between and among different types of fraud, money laundering and other financial crime; • How to recognize commonly used financial crime schemes; • Why red flags are crucial to legal practitioners in banking, securities, contract, M&A, and consumer fields; Topics are targeted to attorneys in the regulatory, compliance, litigation and criminal

Lessons in Disaster: Learning from Law Firm Cyber Breaches (02/23/2021)

Program Number: 3134 Presenter: Mark Sangster

In cybersecurity, this misconception can lead to a false sense of corporate security, or worse, bury the true causes of incidents and lead to repeated data breaches or business disrupting cyber incidents. In this session, we will explore real-world incidents and threats to assemble an actionable cyber resilience framework that adapts to distributed assets, remote workers, and virtual workloads.

Blabbing, Boasting and Ghosting: The Ethics of Lawyers Writing Blogs (03/02/2021)

Program Number: 3127 Presenter: William Hornsby, Esq.

Lawyers, both in practice and business settings, are increasingly communicating via blogs and other forms of social media, such as LinkedIn and Facebook. This programs looks at the ethical parameters that apply to posting information through these vehicles. We explore the range of obligations to maintain the confidentiality of prospective, current and past clients, under ABA Model Rules 1.18, 1.6 and 1.9, when blogging or using other forms of social media. We look at the circumstances under which ghostwritten blogs may be permissible, focusing on Model Rule 7.1. We consider whether blogs are advertisements governed by Model Rules 7.2 and 7.3, and look at cases setting out the criteria for making that determination. The program concludes by considering the possibility that the give and take in a social media post can form an attorney-client relationship.

To Embed, or Not to Embed, that is the Question (01/22/2021)

Program Number: 3114 Presenter: Michael D. Hobbs, Jr. Esq., Shaleen J. Patel, Esq.

A discussion on an increasingly tumultuous area of on-line copyright law. The discussion focuses on a trend where courts are increasingly allowing cases to proceed on the merits in instances of media publishers embedding, a practice of displaying content from one platform into another without actually hosting the underlying content. For years, such a practice seemed safe under the Ninth Circuit’s “server test.” However, districts in other circuits are rejecting that the server test is settled law and questioning the legality of embedding. As social media makes embedding content a more available feature, this broadcast discusses the risks of continuing to embed content without first acquiring permission and possible alternatives.
