Covert surveillance, telecommunications interception, and public sector whistleblowing have created ‘Client 2.0’ for lawyers. This situation requires a wider concept of professional responsibility for government lawyers and gives rise to emergent ethical considerations for private sector practitioners. To do your duty to your client, you must think beyond your client. Topical. Controversial. Confronting. Just like Client 2.0.

Whether you’re litigating, advising or assisting clients with contracts and transactions, complex negotiations are often involved. Inevitably there’s potential for conflict — between lawyer and client or between clients and other stakeholders. How that conflict is managed and negotiated can involve challenging legal and ethical dilemmas. Led by Steve Lancken, Principal of Negocio Resolutions and member of the Society’s ADR Committee, a panel of distinguished and experienced local legal personalities will use a hypothetical scenario to explore a range of ethical and practical issues.
