The practical application of ethical rules to legal practices is not always straightforward, particularly in a complex area of the law such as bankruptcy. Using the ABA Model Rules of Professional Responsibility and hypotheticals drawn with the bankruptcy practitioner in mind, this panel — including Fox Partner Peter J. Roberts and moderated by Fox Partner Allen J. Guon —  discusses some of the common ethical traps that bankruptcy lawyers may face in their practices, and offers techniques and solutions to avoid these traps.
