CLE description: Many issues of ethics and professionalism find their origins in client expectations about how litigation will be conducted.  Under Georgia Rule of Professional Conduct 1.2, decisions about the means of achieving client objectives are the shared responsibility of the lawyer and client.  Neither lawyer nor client has the right under the rules to dictate to the other what means the lawyer will and will not use, within the bounds of the law and the rules of conduct.  In this program, a distinguished panel of lawyers and judges will explore the origins of troublesome client expectations and discuss how to deal with some particularly difficult ones.  Among the issues we will discuss are: (1) control over the discovery process; (2) interaction with opposing party and counsel; (3) the effects of the lawyer's actions on third parties; and (4) taking advantage of mistakes by opposing counsel.
