Firm participates in 2017 ACC Annual Meeting
Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr is proud to sponsor the Association of Corporate Counsel’s 2017 Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. Our firm is involved in this premier event for corporate attorneys in order to deepen our connections with in-house counsel from around the world.
In addition to sponsoring the meeting, two of our attorneys will be participating in sessions during the meeting. Amy Kline, a partner in the firm’s Litigation Practice, will speak on Monday, October 16, the second day of the four-day conference, at a session entitled “Dispute Resolution: Essentials for Transactional Lawyers.” The session will focus on key issues to consider when drafting and negotiating acquisition agreements, and other commercial contracts, related specifically to dispute resolution. John Basinger, also a partner in the firm’s Litigation Practice, will speak on Monday, October 16, at a session entitled “Keeping it Ethical: The Corporation as a Client.” The session will provide an overview of several ethical challenges facing in-house counsel, as well as the law or ethical rule that is applicable to each challenge. The following topics will be addressed: attorney-client privilege, and when the privilege extends to employees; warnings from Upjohn Co. vs. United States; in-house privilege in the European Union; privileged and non-privileged communications; when to consult with the client; privilege waiver; and maintaining privilege.
