On Wednesday, September 16, 2020, Morvillo Abramowitz partner Richard F. Albert was a panelist in a webinar hosted by the New York City Bar. The panel entitled, “Ethical Considerations for Corporate Investigations in the World of COVID-19,” explored current issues and recent developments relating to ethical duties and responsibilities of attorneys and other participants in corporate internal investigations involving public companies and other entities. These issues were discussed from the point of view of counsel for the entity, investigating counsel, counsel for individual executives and government representatives. This year’s program devoted special attention to ethical issues raised by the COVID-19 pandemic, touched on protection of client information, conflicts of interest, the attorney-client privilege, counseling of employee witnesses, and interaction with government agencies.
