Municipal Attorney Ethics: 2013 and Beyond
2:30 - 4:00 p.m.
1.5 Ethics/Professionalism Credits

In an era when government official and attorney-client communications are increasingly conducted electronically, protecting and ensuring client confidentiality assumes everincreasing importance. Legislation, litigation, and even professional responsibility rules seemingly lag behind technology with respect to methods of communication and data retention. Add in a mix of issues involving New Hampshire’s right-to-know law and the emerging and evolving requirements associated with electronic discovery, and representation of local government can become an ethical minefield. This seminar seeks to provide guidance in navigating these “seas” and anticipating and avoiding ethical missteps. On-site Registration Only: Limited seating is available.

Internal Investigations: A Forensic Look
2:30 - 4:00 p.m.
1.5 NHMCLE Credits

The panel, which includes experts who each approach labor and employment law from different advocacy perspectives, will present a step-by-step analysis of an investigation of a hypothetical sexual harassment complaint against a high-performing senior level executive. This includes formulation of an investigation plan, interviewing of witnesses, gathering of evidence and creation and dissemination of the investigative report. In addition to sharing best practices and common pitfalls, the panel will discuss attorney-client privilege issues, the impact on potential claims, union rights and privacy issues. The panel will also focus on some of the strategic considerations involved when dealing with alleged wrongdoing by a senior executive, such as whom counsel is representing (i.e., company, board, executive); mandatory and permissible reporting of bad behavior both inside and outside the company; public relations concerns; counsel’s fiduciary role when confidential settlements or departures are arranged; and policies and training that should be implemented to deal with bad behavior at the highest levels. On-site Registration Only: Limited seating is available.
