Ethics in Arbitration: How Lawyers Can Avoid Legal Risks when Representing their Clients
This program addresses some of the unique ethical questions that can arise in the course of an arbitration proceeding, and suggests practical solutions to such questions. Such questions include: Can an attorney be held responsible for ethical violations in arbitration (or is the consequence only to the client)? Can an attorney appear in an arbitration proceeding in a state (or country) where he or she is not licensed to practice? What are the ethical obligations of counsel to maintain the confidentiality of the arbitration proceeding?
ABA Model Rules covered include: Rule 1.6 (confidentiality); Rule 3.3 (candor toward tribunal); Rule 5.5 (unauthorized practice of law). Opinions covered include: Birbrower, Montalbano, Condon & Frank, P.C., v. Superior Court , 17 Cal. 4th 119 (1998); New York State Bar Association Committee on Professional Ethics, Opinion 837 (3/16/10).
