Jenner & Block Partner Anne P. Ray will present a live CLE webcast about the many ways that conflicts of interest arise: among law firm clients, because of lateral hires and even within corporate legal departments. Titled “Navigating Conflicts of Interest, Avoiding Disqualification, and Preventing Legal Malpractice Claims in Illinois,” theprogram will also address the recent rise in disqualification motions and the potential for legal malpractice claims resulting from conflicts of interest, as well as the use of waivers – both in advance and contemporaneous – to avoid unwanted outcomes. The course will cover the ABA model rules and the ethics landscape nationally; it will focus on Illinois law and the Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct. Sponsored by Lawline.com, the webcast will be held at 9 a.m. Central on May 19.
As a member of the firm’s Professional Responsibility Practice, Ms. Ray represents large, national and international law firms in defense of complex, high-stakes professional liability litigation at both the trial and appellate level. She has successfully argued numerous motions to dismiss in cases against law firms accused of breaching their ethical duties and fiduciary duties to their clients and third parties.
