Lawyers often are asked about a range of issues. Is it the lawyer’s role to provide ethical advice to employees or business ethics advice to employers? What are lawyers’ obligations to keep clients honest?  What is legal versus business or non-legal advice? This panel will explore the extent of lawyers’ obligations, whether communications are  attorney/client privilege when lawyers act as business partners or confidants, and what steps lawyers should take to differentiate their roles and protect attorney/client privileged communications.
