Please note: The Missouri rule covering reporting ethics credits has changed. The previous rule of reporting three ethics credits over three years has been replaced by the requirement of reporting two ethics credits per year. To meet this requirement we are offering two one-hour sessions.
All states (including California, D.C., Illinois, and Missouri) have a version of Model Rule 4.2, which deals with a lawyer’s communicating directly with the party on the other side. This session will deal with circumstances under which a lawyer might do this, the consequences for violation of the rule, direct contacts among clients, issues relating to entity parties, pretexting, and social media.
IF YOU ARE VIEWING THIS WEBINAR FOR CLE, PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR CLE ACCREDITING JURISDICTION(S) IN ADVANCE TO DETERMINE WHETHER IT QUALIFIES FOR CLE CREDIT.

Although we would like to hear from you, we cannot represent you until we know that doing so will not create a conflict of interest. Also, we cannot treat unsolicited information as confidential. Accordingly, please do not send us any information about any matter that may involve you until you receive a written statement from us that we represent you (an ‘engagement letter’).
By clicking the ‘ACCEPT’ button, you agree that we may review any information you transmit to us. You recognize that our review of your information, even if you submitted it in a good faith effort to retain us, and, further, even if you consider it confidential, does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could and will be used against you. Please click the ‘ACCEPT’ button if you understand and accept the foregoing statement and wish to proceed.
