Many issues arise from the reality that in-house counsel serve as both lawyer to, and employee/officer of, the organizational client. As a result, questions abound: Who is the client? What is the corporate and attorney–client relationship among subsidiaries, parent or sister, and spun-off companies? How can client confidences be protected in the business setting? Explore and vote on a series of hypothetical situations such as conflicts among affiliated companies, maintaining client confidences, confidences and whistleblower actions, technology and cybersecurity concerns, and preventing and addressing corporate misconduct.
