We all know that CLE programs are boring and a chore to watch. But we’re breaking the rules – a CLE program that’s intentionally funny and (gasp) entertaining, yet somehow still informative. In the latest installment of this popular series, Zach McGee takes on “PharmaBro” Martin Shkreli, the “Most Hated Man in America.” In this legal ethics program, Mr. McGee provides practical guidance to lawyers should they ever find themselves representing a smart, arrogant, manipulative fraudster like Mr. Shkreli. Reserve your seat today and we’ll waive the two-drink minimum!
This program will not only review the Model Rules of Ethics, but the SEC's Rule 205 and how it regulates the conduct of lawyers who represent public companies.
ABA Model Rule 1.2, 1.6, 1.13, 1.16, 4.1 and 8.4. 17 Code of Federal Regulation 205
