ETHICS: BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR: PITFALLS IN SETTLEMENT NEGOTIATIONS
Carolyn Fairless (Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell; Denver, CO) presents at the The Network of Trial Law Firms' Litigation Management CLE SuperCourse: Settlement negotiations put demands on attorneys to put their clients' cases in the best light. Puffery and misrepresentation are often separated by only a thin line. It's easy to violate ethical proscriptions when communicating with others involved, including opposing parties, opposing counsel, a mediator and your own client. And there are limits on what you can and what you cannot ask for. Trial lawyer Carolyn Fairless gives us some easy-to-follow guidelines and interesting practical examples.
