Join Greenway Health's General Counsel Karen Mulroe and Carlton Fields attorney Adam Schwartz as they examine what to do when the government knocks at your corporate door. This program will review best practices to assist in-house counsel facing a government investigation. Highlights include discussions on the laws and regulations that provide for increased government scrutiny of corporate activities, how investigations tend to launch, signs of an investigation underway, and best practices to handle a corporate response. The presentation will also address ethical dilemmas that may arise for inhouse counsel as the investigation progresses and advice for navigating even the stickiest dilemmas in that role.

Emails and texts have replaced letters and telephone calls as an attorney’s primary means of communication with clients and opposing counsel. While they are convenient, they have a tendency to lead to unprofessional conduct. Attorneys may fire off an email or text without pausing to reflect on what they just typed. This CLE will review the Florida Bar’s position on professionalism as it relates to electronic communications, discuss some cases where attorneys were disciplined for inappropriate electronic communications to clients or opposing counsel, and offer some advice on how attorneys can avoid violating the rules of professional responsibility in their electronic communications.
