On November 4th, Partner John Villa will be speaking at the Practicing Law Institute’s 52nd Annual Institute on Securities Regulation. His segment, “Ethical Issues in Transactional Settings,” will delve into the potential obligations and liabilities of transactional counsel. In particular, it will examine a transactional lawyer’s duty to flag and warn of business risks, to investigate questionable issues in the client’s affairs despite assurances from the client, and to warn a client of failure to observe appropriate corporate approvals, etc., even if beyond the scope of the lawyer’s scope of representation.
The Practicing Law Institute’s Annual Institute on Securities Regulation brings together the nation’s leading securities and corporate legal experts to deliver practical information, insights, and real-world strategies and solutions to the challenges facing professionals and their clients today.
