Legal Ethics and Loss Prevention Issues with Electronic Communications and Security

The art of communication is a lawyer's greatest asset. Modern mobile and communication technology provides many means through which lawyers can communicate with clients, publicize legal services, work remotely, and share information. When selecting and using a technology for communicating with clients, storing client data, or performing work for clients, a lawyer should consider whether that medium is effective and whether its use complies with the lawyer's ethical obligations. This OnDemand Webinar will highlight issues regarding the use of communication technology by lawyers and their clients and discuss many of the pitfalls that can arise. Problems will be illustrated through the use of hypothetical scenarios, and several practical tips for reducing risk will be provided.
