Programme details

The panel will address questions regarding the management and regulation of legal fees in white-collar cases, from the perspective of both law firms and in-house counsel. Notably, what issues arise between counsel for an individual and counsel for the company when the company is paying the bills?

Many benefits can arise, for the company, in funding an individual’s representation, such as access to information from and about the individual and an ability to control the litigation. On the other hand, risks may be present as well, for instance, in terms of perception from external investigators.

The panellists will explore this complex field, moving through a number of topics including joint defense arrangements, cooperation and coordination with ongoing internal investigation, Directors & Officers (D&O) policies, relation and info sharing with the insurance company, conflicts of interests, retainers’ extent, hourly, capped and success fees arrangements, and more.
