Presented by N. Thomas Connally, Frances Le Grys and Jon M. Talotta, of Hogan Lovells (US) LLP and Gerardo Lapetina, General Counsel, APCO Worldwide. As business continues to become more global, differences in ethical rules across jurisdictions matter more than ever for in-house counsel. The duty of confidentiality and the attorney-client privilege are different in the United States and Europe, as are disciplinary rules affecting in-house counsel traveling and working in multiple jurisdictions. Is an internal communication to in-house, which clearly would be privileged under United States law, similarly protected under European Union law? What should in-house counsel think about as to the ethical rules of another jurisdiction applying to their own involvement cross-border? Do both sets of rules apply to your representation of your client? We will address these ethical issues through a series of hypotheticals surveying the rules of the District of Columbia, Virginia and Maryland as well as key European jurisdictions. The panel will provide insights on how in-house counsel can navigate ethical obligations in the United States and Europe even when the rules in these different jurisdictions are not necessarily the same.
