Ethics, Technology and Small Firms
Sponsored by the Idaho Law Foundation, Inc. in partnership with Peach New Media and WebCredenza

Wednesday, April 30, 2014
11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (MDT) / 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. (PDT).
Teleseminar/Audio Stream
1.0 CLE Credit of which 1.0 is Ethics
$50.00 - Online Registration ONLY

Technology has changed everything lawyers do.  You market your expertise through firm web sites, e-newsletters, and social media.  You communicate with clients and opposing counsel via email and mobile devices.  You receive, edit, store and transmit client files electronically.  You may even file documents with the courts electronically. The first ethical duty of a lawyer is to practice competently, which duty includes understanding and managing technology in the law office and, while using it, ensuring client confidences.  In a firm of any size this can be a tremendous challenge – even more so in small firms. This program will provide you with a practical guide to major ethical issues particular to smaller law firms in choosing and using technology in law practice.

  • Ethical issues for small firms using law office technology
  • Email – ensuring client confidences, retaining and destroying electronic files and communications
  • “The Cloud” – storing client files on remote, shared servers
  • Files – retaining and destroying electronic files
  • Client Development – firm web sites, e-mail/newsletter updates, and social media
  • Client Money – managing client money online and using credit cards

Speaker: Thomas E. Spahn is a partner in the McLean, Virginia office of McGuireWoods, LLP, where he has a broad complex commercial, business and securities litigation practice. He also has a substantial practice advising businesses on properly creating and preserving the attorney-client privilege and work product protections.  For more than 20 years he has lectured extensively on legal ethics and professionalism and has written “The Attorney-Client Privilege and the Work Product Doctrine: A Practitioner’s Guide,” a 750 page treatise published by the Virginia Law Foundation.  Mr. Spahn has served as member of the ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility and as a member of the Virginia State Bar's Legal Ethics Committee.  He received his B.A., magna cum laude, from Yale University and his J.D. from Yale Law School.
