PANEL 2 9:00 am 10:30 am

ETHICS IN ENTERTAINMENT LAW A PRACTICAL APPROACH TO CLIENT REPRESENTATION Back by popular demand, this panel discusses the rules of professional conduct as applied to all lawyers. However, because of nuances from one practice area to another, the rules may have a disparate impact on entertainment lawyers. For example, what conflicts of interest are impermissible? What constitutes reasonable compensation? What does competency mean, as used in Rule 1.1 of the ABA Model Rules? The panel will address these and other issues such as the overlapping roles of agents, managers and lawyers, the effectiveness and requirements of conflict of interest waivers, the need for engagement agreements that include compensation structures for professional services, multi-jurisdictional practice, and the judicial authority to oversee lawyer behavior and to impose sanctions under rules of professional conduct. The panel will speak to protecting a lawyers reputation and license by avoiding the big mistakes. Moderator: Kenneth J. Abdo, Esq., Lommen, Abdo, Cole, King & Stageberg, PA, Minneapolis, MN Panelists: The Hon. Peter R. Lopez, Judge, 11th Judicial Circuit of Florida, Miami, FL The Hon.
