Although at risk of being overlooked, hiring practices are an important part of a law firm’s ethical infrastructure. As the CBA Ethical Practices Self-Evaluation Tool describes, not only are lawyers “[t]he greatest asset to any law firm,” they are also a major source of risk. Lateral hires can be particularly risky: as noted in a leading American law firm risk management text, “[t]here are multiple instances of awards and settlements in the millions of dollars because of lateral hiring decisions that turn out to have introduced ‘Trojan horses’ into law firms.”
In this webinar, you will learn about hiring and human rights, protecting confidentiality during hiring, including transfer between law firms and interviewing do’s & dont’s.
