Ethics in Evolving Compliance Requirements

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

1-2PM Eastern Time

Did you know? Attorneys risk violating professional conduct rules when handling business formations.

Many laws now exist to prevent money laundering, terrorism and tax evasion — but what attorneys don't know about them can result in fines and possibly cost them their license.

Learn the laws and governing agencies to watch, and the conflicts that can arise between statutory formation requirements and ethics guidelines. CT's expert staff of attorneys cover the current lay of the land and discuss the potential impact of legislation now pending.

Who should attend:

  • Attorneys and paralegals in law firms who handle corporate business compliance, entity formation, and mergers and acquisitions
  • In-house counsel and paralegals responsible for corporate compliance

Attendees will learn:

  • The laws that impose penalties for doing business with certain risk groups
  • The ABA's Gatekeeper initiative that offers risk-based guidance
  • How current and pending legislation can impact attorney-client privilege
  • Ethical considerations of potential anti-money laundering requirements for lawyers
  • Client Due Diligence methods to prevent ethical dilemmas
