Correspondingly, the ability to surveil constitutes one of those activities most susceptible to abuse by a government against its citizens. In the U.S., the government’s use of electronic surveillance is highly regulated and can be conducted for only two purposes: law enforcement, which is undertaken by both federal and state governments; and foreign intelligence collection, which is an exclusively federal government function conducted pursuant to a single authority - the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act or “FISA”. FISA governs not only electronic surveillance but the use of physical searches, pen registers, trap and trace

Program Number: 2920 Presenter: David R. Johanson, Esq., Roberta Casper Watson, Esq.

An employee stock ownership plan or “ESOP” can be an extremely useful tool in terms of tax and employee benefits that it provides and in the contexts of business succession planning and corporate mergers and acquisitions. The design and structure of ESOP transactions and the administration of ESOPs in general, however, remain subject to heightened scrutiny. To help ERISA counsel, accountants, and corporate directors and officers understand the statutory and regulatory framework that governs ESOP transactions, our panel will discuss applicable laws and regulations impacting ESOP transactions, available regulatory guidance, and other critical considerations for structuring ESOP transactions. This program on advanced structuring alternatives for ESOP transactions will address the available financing alternatives for ESOP transactions, ESOP transaction structure alternatives, how management incentive plans may factor into transaction planning and procedures, clawbacks and earn-outs in ESOP transactions, and potential conflicts of interests in structuring ESOP transactions.

Ethics and Employment Law: Who is the Client and is it you?

Program Number: 2919 Presenter: Patricia C. Collins, Esq.

This seminar will review the ethics issues that arise for employment attorneys in representing an organization. It is inevitable that such a representation will result in close working relationships with executives and human resource employees that complicate the attorney-client relationship. Further, close involvement with the operations of the client or a particular decision regarding an employee may render the attorney a fact witness or simply too close to give good advice. Topics to be examined are: negotiating employee contracts, drafting policies that impact your client contact, termination or resignation of your client contract, attorneys as fact witnesses, attorneys as investigators, and maintaining professional distance.

Trying Employment Cases in the Trump Era

Program Number: 2916 Presenter: Christopher V. Bacon, Esq.

With increased polarization of political opinions in the Trump, lawyers defending employers in employment cases have had to reconsider how they select jurors and present their cases. During this presentation Chris Bacon will talk about how he and other employment lawyers have adjusted their trial strategies in this new era. Questions that we will discuss include: How should a lawyer handle voir dire? What kind of jurors are you looking for? Is a juror with strong conservative views really an ideal juror for the defense in a sexual harassment or race discrimination case? We will also talk about how the actual trial needs to be approached in this era of political tribalism. For example, what arguments resonate best with jurors today including those with strong liberal views (e.g., the #metoo juror in a harassment case)? How do you make your witnesses persuasive –and likeable-- to jurors on both sides
