This panel discussion will explore various ethical and professionalism issues that our panelists and program attendees have encountered over the course of their careers, the manner in which they have addressed these issues, and their best practice recommendations for lawyers working in the information technology law field. Some of the questions that will be explored at this panel discussion are:
- When is it permissible to act adverse in interest to a former client of the firm or yourself, and should you do it even when it is permissible?
- How do you decide how to proceed when faced with a situation where there are no precedents for an IT contract that you have to prepare?
- When is it appropriate to suggest alternative resolution to a client who is heading towards litigation involving any technology transaction?
