When bad things happen to good people: Ethical redlines in negotiations

Event Details


On-demand webinar

Australia | 1 CPD point

Australian in-house counsel have experienced unprecedented workloads during 2020, due to COVID-19 related changes to our economy, regulatory landscape and the social fabric. When business is operating in crisis-mode, even “good” lawyers can overlook all the implications of a course of action, and unwittingly take ethical missteps.

As 2020 draws to a close, we invite you to view our final “when bad things happen to good people” webinar with a special one-hour focus on ethics. We will consider the life cycle of a commercial dispute and consider the ethical issues which might arise including:

  • When does hard-line negotiating breach your ethical duties? We will consider your obligations in commercial negotiations and settlement negotiations.
  • What ethical issues do you need to consider when commencing proceedings against another party?
  • Where are the traps for the unwary – protecting privileged communications and confidential information
  • How do you keep your ethical compass in check when working from home?

This session includes an overview of the topic and will conclude with a Q&A/discussion element.
