Richard Supple to Speak at Program on the Ethics of In-House Lawyers
J. Richard Supple Jr., Partner-in-Charge of the New York office and member of the Lawyers for the Profession® group at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, will be a panelist at the program "Understanding the Moral Compass of In-House Lawyers" on July 14, 2016. The event is hosted by Ethical Systems and co-sponsored by New York State Bar Association International Section and Corporate Counsel Section. It will take place at the NYU Stern School of Business from 5:00–6:30pm EST.
The program will discuss how, during the past 20 years, there has been a shifting landscape of the practice of law, as corporate in-house departments have greatly expanded, while competition and consolidation has altered private practice at law firms. It will also provide a unique profile of individual in-house lawyers and their teams' orientations, the invocation of professional principles, ethical infrastructure, ethical pressure and relationships with the employer.
Mr. Supple is the co-leader of the firm's Lawyers for Professionals Department. He concentrates in the representation of law firms and lawyers in professional ethics-related matters, including disciplinary and legal malpractice cases, partnership and fee disputes, disqualification and sanctions motions, risk management advising and internal investigations.
