Attorney Ethics When Supervising Other Attorneys & Paralegals
Sponsored by the Idaho Law Foundation, Inc. in partnership with Peach New Media and WebCredenza, Inc.

Attorneys bear responsibility not only to ensure they practice ethically but also for the ethical practice of attorneys they supervise. Most commonly, this comes in the context of a partner supervising the work or an associate or junior partner, but those responsibilities also arise when in-house counsel supervises an outside attorney, any attorney supervises a paralegal, and when an attorney works with co-counsel from another firm. Each of these fact patterns raises different ethical concerns and the specter of liability if the supervised attorney or non-attorney legal professional acts improperly. This program will provide you with a real-world guide to ethical issues when attorneys supervise the work of other attorneys and paralegals. 

  • Attorney ethics in supervising and subordinate attorneys
  • Standards for ensuring compliance by subordinate attorneys & and liability for when they act improperly
  • Issues when in-house counsel supervision of outside counsel
  • Ethics rules for associate attorneys who rely on decision-making of supervisory attorneys
  • Special issues involved in billing the work of subordinate and co-counsel attorneys, and paralegals
  • Ethical issues when supervising paralegals and other non-attorney personnel

Speakers:
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. 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.

Matthew Corbin is Vice President and Director in the Professional Services Group of AON Risk Services, where he consults with the company’s law firm clients on professional responsibility and liability issues. Before joining AON, he was a partner with Lathrop & Gage, LLP, where he was a trial and appellate lawyer handling professional liability, commercial, business tort, employment, construction, insurance, and regulatory matters. Before entering private practice, he served as a judicial clerk to Judge Mary Briscoe of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.  Mr. Corbin earned his B.A. from the University of Kansas and his J.D. from the University of Kansas School of Law.
