Professional, Practical & Legal Considerations in Reputation Defense for Attorneys in the Era of Social Media
The proliferation of web-based ratings applications, whether specifically geared toward attorneys (e.g., Avvo) or businesses in general (e.g., Yelp), along with social media, blogs and even website comment sections, has dramatically increased the avenues for criticism by clients, prospective clients, opposing parties and sometimes random individuals. Because reputation is critical to an attorney’s practice, the first instinct is often to react to what is perceived as unfair criticism, but such efforts often backfire. This seminar reviews various approaches to reputation defense, considerations of professionalism and ethical implications.

3:15 – 4:45 p.m
In-House Professional Conduct Panel
In-house counsel from companies ranging in size from local startups to Fortune 500 companies examine ethical considerations that arise in coordinating outside counsel, managing internal controls and maintaining confidentiality during performance of their job duties, including negotiating major contracts and M&A activity. The panel also will compare and contrast approaching different types of ethical issues through the lens of in-house counsel versus the ethical issues facing attorneys in private practice.
