Products Liability and Mass Tort partner Michael C. Zogby presented 1.5 hours of Ethics continuing legal education on May 14, 2016 at Fordham University School of Law in New York City.  Entitled “The Attorney Ethics System: Offenses, Discipline, and Avoiding Mistakes,” Mike discussed the New York and New Jersey attorney ethics disciplinary systems, updates on New Jersey disciplinary statistics, the July 2016 changes to the New York system, and the Rules of Professional Conduct.  He provided real examples of disciplinary sanctions, and explained how those sanctions were meted by the disciplinary committees. He also addressed the ethical minefields that exist, how to  avoid (successfully) those minefields, and what happens if the rules are broken, including a discussion of trial pitfalls and corporate due diligence challenges.
