Stone & Magnanini Partner Amy Walker Wagner presented for the American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education live and video webcast CLE program “The Ethical Implications of Electronically Stored Information (“ESI”)” held on November 10, 2015. The program’s panel examined the ethical obligations attorneys have in the digital age when dealing with electronically stored information and communications in their transactional, litigation, and business practices so as to prevent lapses that could jeopardize attorney-client privilege, forfeit work-product protection, breach ethical obligations, and risk exposure to legal malpractice claims. The panel explored the relevant Model Rules of Professional Conduct and offered ESI-related strategies for complying with the amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure scheduled to go into effect on December 1, 2015. The panel also offered practice tips such as what an attorney should ask about ESI when meeting with a potential or existing client and what an attorney should know about ESI for a negotiation or meet and confer with opposing counsel.
