SIGNATURE LUNCH: A Day in the Life of Taylor Truth – The Ethical
Questions We Face in the Corporate World
11:30 AM - 2:00 PM, LIVE ONLY at VALO Park, 7950 Jones Branch Drive, McLean, VA.
Presented by Jeniffer Roberts, Partner, Alston & Bird LLP;
Katherine Veeder, Senior Associate, Alston & Bird LLP; Melanie Condron,
Senior Counsel – Compliance & Ethics, Accenture Federal Services; and
another in-house panelist.
At any given time, in-house counsel are faced with a variety of
ethical quandaries that raise questions regarding who is the client, when is a
communication privileged, what is business advice vs. legal advice (and why
does it matter), and how best to protect the company. Add to that the most recent issues associated
with social media, the “me too” movement, and the globalization of companies,
the ethical questions and challenges being faced by in-house counsel can be
endless and overwhelming.
This program examines such ethical pressures in the context of a
variety of “a day in the life” scenarios faced by Taylor Truth, a deputy
general counsel with unmatched ambition at a thriving global company growing in
size and scrutiny. We will discuss these scenarios through the lens of the
prevailing Rules of Professional Conduct while respecting other unique
considerations associated with being in-house counsel.
Participants will discuss and debate challenging hypothetical
scenarios and will receive tips, tricks and best practices in an interactive,
entertaining and fast-moving two-hour course.
Members: $30 ($10 Members in Transition); Non-members: $60;
Sponsors may use signature “tickets".

GREATER VIRGINIA: Superhero Ethics: The Ethics of
Industry and Issue Lawyering
3:15 - 5:30 PM; 5:30-7:00 PM Networking reception (Richmond Only), LIVE at
Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP, Riverfront Plaza, East Tower, 951 East Byrd Street,
Richmond, VA and via videoconference at Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP, 500 East Main
Street, Suite 1000, Norfolk, VA.
Presented by Kelly Faglioni, Partner with Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP and
Just as superheros set aside their squabbling and
differences to unite against a common enemy threatening to destroy Earth, so
too lawyers and clients have learned the power and value of bringing together
clients with a common interest. Competitors, customers, and a myriad of
other stakeholders often combine either in industry- or issue-specific
coalitions, groups, consortiums, and associations, and they often do so without
incorporating or otherwise forming a separately recognized legal entity.
Lawyers representing these unincorporated associations or the companies who
join them must navigate a variety of twists and challenges that implicate
duties under applicable professional rules.
Using superheroes as our inspiration, this 2-hour CLE will take on:
- Who’s in charge and how to ensure that the lawyers can represent these unincorporated associations through “duly authorized constituents” consistent with Rule 1.13.
- What are the scope and terms of representation of the unincorporated association?
- Is all of the work for the unincorporated association legal work, and if not, what are the implications?
- How to manage confidentiality and privilege issues in the course of the representation consistent with the professional rules.
- How to anticipate conflicts when representing on an industry- or issue-specific basis?
- What are the considerations under the professional rules related to how the unincorporated association pays for legal services?
In-house counsel only; no fee to attend.

The ACC NCR staff is expanding! We are excited to
announce the addition of three new staff members:
of Programming – Stephanie S. Minkoff
of Greater Virginia – Frost Burnett Telegadas
Director – Pamela “Pamm” V. McNeil
Stephanie started on September 4 and will work with ACC NCR’s volunteer
leaders on the chapter’s extensive slate of educational and community programs
in the District, Northern Virginia, and suburban Maryland. She brings 17
years of practice development experience gained at D.C. law firms, across
practice groups and client industries. As she
transitions into her new position, Stephanie will be supported in-person at
programs by Executive Director Shannon Graving or Senior Director Ilene Reid
and will work remotely with Director of Legal Education Kasha Hunt, who
recently moved to the West Coast (Kasha’s husband now works for the Sacramento
Kings; thankfully there are phones and computers there too; go Wizards!).
On September 17, Frost will return to lead the chapter’s efforts
in Greater Virginia, as well as select chapter-wide initiatives and programs.
Frost has more than 30 years of combined experience in private practice,
Virginia State Bar ethics, specialty Bar administration and continuing
education event planning, including six years as ACC NCR’s Regional Coordinator
(2006 - 2012). She will be based in Richmond.
Finally, Pamm also joined the team on September 4 to support many of
ACC NCR’s initiatives and apply her years of operations experience at law
firms, legal departments, nonprofit organizations, and associations to the
chapter. In particular, Pamm will be working on expanded
community-focused programs and social events.
We hope you will join us in welcoming the newest staff
members. We look forward to working with them and all of you to continue
providing outstanding services to members, sponsors, and our community.
