Seminar  One-Hour Briefing

Legal Ethics for Health Care and Life Sciences Attorneys – Hot Topics


  • Webcast


    Sep. 27, 2017

    1:00 PM Eastern

Attorneys practicing in the health care and life sciences fields address issues on a daily basis that touch on questions of regulatory compliance, corporate codes of conduct and ethics, and corporate social responsibility considerations, all of which are unique and specific to their industries.  At the same time, the attorneys themselves are also regulated by the rules of professional conduct governing all attorneys in the jurisdictions in which they practice.  This One-Hour Briefing will highlight some hot topics in attorney ethics that are likely to arise in the health care and life sciences areas. 

Please join Jennifer Smith Finnegan, General Counsel of the law firm Herrick, Feinstein LLP, as she discusses and offers some practical tips for attorneys to ensure their compliance with attorney ethics rules on topics such as:   

  • Use of social media in representing clients
  • Do you know who your client is?
  • Multijurisdictional practice of law
  • What should you do about metadata?
  • Confidential information through the lens of the attorney-client relationship
