Moderated by Jim Villa, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, Versar, Inc. In-house counsel often wears two hats - providing legal advice to the business team is often intertwined with the business decision itself. How does in-house counsel balance its dual roles within the confines of the ethics rules when acting as both a legal advisor and a business advisor? This seminar will address ethical issues in-house counsel often faces when wearing more than one professional “hat,” including:• Defining the “client” • Protecting attorney-client privilege• Separating legal from non-legal advice • Communicating with non-legal personnel• Obligations in dealing with potentially dishonest or illegal conduct• Rules allowing in-house counsel to represent the client, in some situations, without being a licensed member of the bar • Maximizing insurance protection for in-house counsel in both roles2.0 HOURS OF VIRGINIA ETHICS CREDIT APPROVED
