Intellectual Property Law 2021: "Counselor, You're Muted”: Maintaining Professionalism and Ethics in a Post-COVID Practice


While day-to-day practice for lawyers may have changed in the post-COVID landscape, our ethical and professional obligations to clients, opposing counsel, and the state bar have generally remained the same. Understanding how those past obligations are being molded in the current remote-based environment requires a review of our ethical obligations on the maintenance of confidentiality of client's sensitive information, particularly electronically stored information (ESI) and the standard of professionalism in a remote-based environment.

Great info on how some states are now mandating CLEs specifically in technology. That's a good idea since it is such a fast and changing area. Also enjoyed the comparison of the TPCA, GDPR and CCPA and the discussion of Virginia's Consumer Protection Act- 2023.

Good information, especially about data security obligations.
