Description
Professor Adrian Evans

Is there an emerging duty on lawyers to protect shareholder value by blowing whistles about their clients' activities?

Legal ethics has traditionally valued client confidentiality above all other professional duties, but confidentiality generally is disintegrating and the underlying loyalties of lawyers are increasingly important.

Where are the legal implications for stakeholders, including lawyers, when client confidentiality is at odds with shareholder interest?

Presented by Prof Adrian Evans, this webinar will explore these and related issues, including the notion of excessive adversarialism, lawyers' honesty and their connections to the Australian Solicitors' Conduct Rules.
