A Watchful Eye? Considerations on Staff and Office Security

Solo and Small-Firm, Technology Track (Studio 2)

There has been an increase in potentially harmful incidents directed at members of the judiciary, attorneys, and staff. As a Solo and Small Firm practitioner, you need to make sure that you are providing a physically secure environment for yourself, your clients, and your staff. Panelists will discuss the following: 1) What physical security measures are appropriate for the office? For instance, can you install a security camera at the point of entry or any other parts of the office to monitor the comings and goings of visitors/clients? 2) What federal and state privacy laws are impacted here? 3) What are the restrictions on recording employees? 4) Does capturing a client on camera in for an office visit a violation of attorney client privilege? Is it potentially discoverable evidence? 5) Are there other lesser security measures that can be taken? What about obtaining a security assessment from a consultant or perhaps giving some basic safety training to staff? 6) What kind of disclosures on these security measures need to be made to clients and/or staff? (i.e., posting a sign? Disclosure in a retainer agreement? etc.)Access Seminar MaterialsCLE Credits For This Program:

Insta What?? Using Social Media to Ethically Build Your Brand

Ethics, Law Practice Management, Solo and Small-Firm, Technology Track (Luna)

There is no question that social media is a growing force for reaching clients and building a brand. This panel will show Solo and Small Firm attorneys who may not be familiar with using social media some of the tools they can use to reach new clients ethically. Specifically, panelists will demonstrate the following: 1) What a LinkedIn profile is, the type of information that should be posted on LinkedIn, and how LinkedIn can be used to reach potential new clients 2) What InstaGram is, the types of postings that can be made, and how it can be used to reach new clients 3) X (formerly Twitter) and TikTok – these present special challenges for attorneys but do reach a younger potential clientele base After these social media tools are demonstrated, panelists will then discuss (i) how you can use them and how the rules on attorney advertising and ethics apply to them and any pitfalls you need to be aware of, plus (ii) how to avoid the “appearance of impropriety.” Just because an attorney can do something, does not always mean they should. The appearance of impropriety is an important concern as well, especially if we want to maintain standards in our profession.Access Seminar MaterialsCLE Credits For This Program:
