October 5: Seattle - Coffee Shops, Clouds, and Contractors: The Ethical Considerations of Shared Working & Meeting Spaces, Keeping Client Documents Online, and Hiring Help

Many new solo and low bono lawyers find themselves conducting business in shared and public spaces – both virtual and real – in order to keep costs down. What do the ethics rules have to say about office sharing and co-working? Or meeting with clients in public? How about when you are ready to expand your business but you’re not quite ready to take on employees – what ethical issues do you need to consider before joining forces with others or taking on contractors? From phone answering services to paralegals, from cloud file sharing and payments to coffee shop conversations, to contract attorneys, what do you need to know?
Explore all of this and more with ethics expert Jeanne Marie Clavere, Professional Responsibility Counsel at the WSBA. With the help of Veronica Smith-Casem ’02 and JD/MBA candidate Jeff Hamilton participants will engage and explore real-world hypotheticals that other low bono lawyers have faced, and then Jeanne Marie, will provide the solid and reliable answers attorneys need to navigate these 21st century challenges.
