Lowenstein Sandler's Spring Alumni CLE Day will feature three CLE programs on timely legal issues and provide you with an opportunity to reconnect and network with LS attorneys and alumni over lunch.
Registration and Breakfast
Paid Family, Medical, and Sick Leave Compliance & Best Practices
This program is a discussion of both the New York and New Jersey paid sick leave laws and paid family leave laws. The program will address the significant impact of recent legislation on employee time off and paid benefits. Panelists will provide policy and practice tips for employers.
The Ethics of Client Pitches and Client Secondments
Presented by David M. Wissert & Sarah Scott
This CLE will explore the ethical issues that arise when pitching for work from prospective clients by taking an in-depth look at the recent decision in Skybell Technologies, Inc. v. Ring, Inc. and the court’s interpretation of Rule of Professional Conduct 1.18, which addresses the duties owed to prospective clients. The CLE also will explore the ethical requirements for client secondments to avoid the imputation of conflicts of interests between the firm and the client.
Topics will include rapidly changing trade rules impacting clients day to day business including investment fund and merger and acquisition activities, real estate investments and even bankruptcy workouts. Specifically, we will cover the following regulatory regimes: import regulations and Customs procedures; export regulations, prohibitions, and licensing requirements; changes in CFIUS and FIRRMA filings; U.S. sanctions and embargoes; and foreign investment filing requirements.
The program is being held at Lowenstein Sandler, One Lowenstein Drive Roseland, NJ 07068
