Level 5, 160 St Georges Terrace Perth
This seminar explores the limits between professional advice and professional misconduct. Using the case study method for imparting practical information, it will look at illegality, professional competence and privilege through an example in commercial law. The case study opens by analysing a conventional sale of business transaction and then progresses by looking at the following issues:
- Conflicts of interest
- Obligations of disclosure in negotiations
- Legal capacity of your client to make decisions
- The limits between professional advice and professional misconduct
- Explore what your ongoing disclosure requirements are in a sale of business transaction
The areas discussed are all framed by ethical considerations of practitioners and the limits on legal professional privilege and confidentiality.
A light lunch will be provided.
