Ethics Teleconference: Risk- The Game of Reduction of Professional Exposure, Loss Prevention, and Bond Counsel Liability

Recorded Date: Thursday, December 14, 2017.    
CLE Credit: Ethics, 90 minutes


Description: This teleconference includes a practical discussion of how bond counsel can be exposed to potential professional liability. The panel focuses on conflicts of interest, the necessity and benefits of utilizing an engagement letter and other Model Rules that bond counsel need to consider in any engagement. Through interactive discussion and case studies, the panel illustrates conflict scenarios, whether the conflicts can be waived, and the process of waiving a conflict of interest. The panelists also discuss and employ hypotheticals to explain what should be included in an engagement letter and review the NABL Model Engagement Letter. The teleconference also includes a malpractice insurance representative from ALAS to give a unique perspective on liability scenarios. The panelists discuss the expanding role of bond counsel and how that expanding role can impact professional exposure and loss prevention. Additional topics of client confidentiality and data security and how breaches in a firm's network can expose you to professional liability are covered.
