Staying Ethical in an In-House Legal Environment

Providence, RI
April 3, 2019

Locke Lord and the Association of Corporate Counsel's Northeast ‎Chapter hosted an Ethics Program ‎focusing on the unique and often tricky ethics challenges ‎faced by in-house counsel today.‎ While this program was applicable to all in-house counsel, Rhode ‎Island in-house counsel participants earned two ‎CLE ethics credits just in time for the Rhode Island Bar, June ‎‎30 deadline.‎


Mark Freel, Laura Wilkinson (both Locke Lord) and Jeremy Weinberg (Hasbro, Inc.) lead a discussion on ethics issues affecting ‎in-house counsel, including issues related but not limited to:

  • Confidentiality
  • Privilege
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Social media
  • Intragroup ‎conflicts of interest
  • Identification of the client
  • Corporate ‎‎"Miranda" warnings
