    Canberra: Clients, Courts and Managing Ethical Obligations

    What happens when lawyers focus on their client's interests but fail to recognise their overarching obligation as a lawyer to the courts and community? This update on recent case law will reinforce the importance of putting these overarching obligations as a practitioner ahead of client interest.

    Presented by Mark Treffers, Partner, Minters, Australian Capital Territory.

    Mark has more than 30 years’ experience as a litigation and dispute resolution specialist in all areas of commercial, construction, compensation and insurance disputes, and regulatory risk advice.

    Mark’s expertise spans legislative and regulatory advising, liability and compensation claims including toxic torts and multi-party disputes, employment disputes and investigations, professional indemnity, public liability, D&O and EPL claims, work health and safety risk and breaches and disputes with serious reputational risk. He has represented clients in a range of courts, tribunals and inquiries and seen how ethical obligations can be overlooked in the pressure of litigation.

    Please note this seminar is open to ACC Australia (ACLA) members only.
