Jointly present
Ethics Update 2017

Lawyers face certain challenges on a daily basis, including the proper maintenance of escrow accounts and record keeping and electronic discovery issues. Additional developments in the lead case, “Galasso” and its related civil matters provide lessons as to the best practices in the firm and outside of the firm as to a lawyer’s fiduciary responsibilities and reliance on others. In addition, the implications of the use of email and other electronic devices, as well as spyware in discovery are issues that consistently crop up. Our panel will first discuss Galasso and its implications. The second part of the program will use a matrimonial fact scenario to examine various ethical issues that arise in the electronic world in which we live and litigate, including but not limited to inadvertent disclosure of confidential information; use of spyware; false evidence; and duty to report misconduct.  Applying the New York Rules of Professional Conduct, precedent and bar association opinions, the Panel will discuss the applicable practical and ethical concerns that come into play when these issues arise.
