Briendel, Esq., Pace Women’s Justice Center
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Lawyers face certain challenges on a daily basis, including the proper maintenance of escrow accounts and recordkeeping and electronic discovery issues. Additional developments in the lead case, “Galasso” and its related civil matters provide lessons as to the best practices in the firm and outside of the firm as to a lawyer’s fiduciary responsibilities and reliance on others. In addition, the implications of the use of email and other electronic devices, as well as spyware in discovery are issues that consistently crop up. Our panel will discuss Galasso and its implications. Applying the New York Rules of Professional Conduct, precedent and bar association opinions, the Panel will discuss the applicable practical and ethical concerns that come into play when these issues arise.
