Each attendee must register individually as they will need their own login to access the event and comply with CLE requirements.

Overly broad confidentiality provisions let defendants repeat their bad conduct and hurt more people. They also restrict plaintiffs’ lawyers from effectively marketing their experience. The Model Rules of Professional Conduct that apply in nearly all jurisdictions make the secrecy provisions that settling defendants often want to impose on your clients unethical. Join Patrick Malone as he teaches you how to use ethics provisions to defeat, or at least severely curtail, the defense’s demands for confidentiality.  

In this 60-minute CLE on the ethics of confidential settlements, Malone will cover:

  • Early client education
  • How Rules 3.4-f and 5.6-b have been interpreted on the state and national level to greatly limit confidentiality in settlement agreements
  • Special problems presented by presuit settlements and nondisparagement requests
  • Practice tips for resisting and rewriting confidentiality provisions
