Ethics Tips For Successful Plaintiffs' Employment Lawyers

As plaintiffs’ employment lawyers, we face many ethics questions and challenges in our practices. Our fee agreements need to balance the tension between serving client needs and getting ourselves paid. Some of our clients face mental health or other challenges that require our accommodations as well as (ethical) creativity. Potential conflicts lurk in multiple-plaintiff cases. We need robust office systems so nothing slips through the cracks. Members of NELA’s highly active and experienced Ethics & Sanctions Committee will share practical and strategic advice on some key trouble areas that will help keep your employment practice ethical and successful.

The proceeds from this webinar will be directed to NELA’s Sanctions Assistance Fund for Emergency Relief (SAFER), which provides grants to assist employee rights advocates in defraying the costs and expenses associated with defending against sanctions motions and awards that can cripple their practices. Find more information about SAFER at our website.
