Lawyers all over the world are subject to strict conflict-of-interest rules. Although these rules all serve the same basic objective, their precise contents differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Lawyers working in multinational law firms may be subject to multiple sets of conflicts rules and need to understand how these differences affect them and their firms. Multinational clients retain law firms in many different jurisdictions throughout the world and also need to understand the conflict-of-interest rules to which those law firms are subject.
Our panelists, including leading lawyers from the United States and Europe, will discuss these issues from the perspectives of in-house and outside lawyers and academic specialists in legal ethics.
