Demystifying Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies (05/07/2020)

Program Number: 3078 Presenter: David Kalat

In conventional usage, the term “hacking” generally refers to an unauthorized user gaining access to an electronic resource. Hackers use various means to steal, guess, calculate, or otherwise obtain credentials to access systems and data they are not allowed to access. When we talk about “hacking” a blockchain, however, this does not adequately or accurately describe what has happened and blinds us to understanding where the real risks lie in this new technology of distributed ledgers and crypto-assets. The high-profile, most destructive, and expensive “hacks” in blockchain environments actually represent *authorized* users misbehaving. In some cases, these are authorized users acting on their own behalf to exploit weaknesses in the system to their own gain at the expense of other users, in other cases these are authorized users who are misusing the trust placed in them by their customers. The key to protecting yourself against fraud in this new alien

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act: Lawyer's Ethical Responsibilities in a Rapidly Changing Legislative, Administrative, and Judicial Environment (11/12/2020)

Program Number: 30270 Presenter: Tiffany R. Hubbard, Esq., Hugh F. Murray, III, Esq.

Congress passed the FFCRA early in the COVID-19 pandemic and extremely quickly. Two components of the FFCRA – The Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act and the Family Medical Leave Expansion Act – impacted most employers in the United States, providing generous new benefits funded by the federal government and operated through public and private employers. Those two laws interacted with a wide variety of pre-existing state and some federal laws, as well as employer policies and subsequent statutory developments in the CARES Act. The USDOL came out first with guidance, then with emergency regulations, that interpreted the FFCRA laws. Some of these regulations were challenged in court, and in August a court struck several of them down. USDOL then revised and reissued the regulations to address some of the concerns raised by the Court. Lawyers practicing in this area faced a wide variety of challenges, not the least of which was assessing

The program will also review the latest developments in data breach litigation to identify trends and topics of interest to attorneys providing advice or counsel to clients in this area.

Must Lawyers Now Affirmatively Challenge Their Clients? — New ABA Guidance (06/08/2020)

Program Number: 30157 Presenter: Daniel R. Alonso, Esq., Joel Cohen, Esq., Michael S. Ross, Esq.

Lawyers are trusted keepers of their client’s secrets, but sometimes a lawyer might suspect that the client is seeking the lawyer’s advice or assistance to carry out a transaction that is criminal or fraudulent. Existing Rule 1.2(d) of the American Bar Association’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct prohibits lawyers from counseling clients to engage in activity the lawyer knows is fraudulent. But what if the lawyer strongly suspects nefarious aims, but does not have actual knowledge? On April 29, 2020, the ABA issued Formal Opinion 491, in which it advised that lawyers have a duty to inquire further if the facts known establish a “high probability” that the client is seeking to use the lawyer’s services to commit a crime or a fraud. The panel of distinguished ethics professionals will explore the contours of this duty to inquire, with concrete guidance and examples of scenarios in which the issue
