PANEL 1
8:00 am – 9:00 am
ETHICS IN ENTERTAINMENT LAW – A PRACTICAL APPROACH TO CLIENT REPRESENTATION
Back by popular demand, this panel discusses the rules of professional conduct as applied to all lawyers. However, because of nuances from one practice area to another, the rules may have a disparate impact on entertainment
lawyers. For example, what conicts of interest
are impermissible? What constitutes reasonable compensation? What does “competency” mean, as used in Rule 1.1 of the ABA Model Rules? The panel will address these and other issues such as the overlapping roles of agents, managers and lawyers, the effectiveness and
requirements of conict of interest waivers, the
need for engagement agreements that include compensation structures for professional services, multi-jurisdictional practice, and the  judicial authority to oversee lawyer behavior and to impose sanctions under rules of professional conduct. The panel will speak to protecting a lawyer’s reputation and license by avoiding the big mistakes.
