The program provided insights on the Rules of Professional Conduct to help attorneys understand the identity of the client, the duties owed to the client and to third parties, and the issues that give rise to potential conflicts in the business litigation, intellectual property (IP) and bankruptcy contexts.

She represents lawyers and law firms in professional liability malpractice disputes and disciplinary investigations before the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers (BBO).

Chris focuses his practice on business disputes, legal malpractice, and complex commercial litigation. He assists large and mid-sized law firms and sole attorneys in client disputes, fee disputes, risk management, and professional ethics. Lawyers go to him for counseling on their own professional rights and obligations and for advice on resolving disputes.
