This session, co-sponsored by the NYSBA Committee on Attorney Professionalism, will consider the enactment of laws regulating corporate behavior, and the scandals leading up to the enactment of these laws, have given rise to an environment in which there is heightened focus on the conduct of lawyers generally. These developments may present a particularly interesting backdrop for attorneys advising on issues arising under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”), and the corresponding provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the “Code”), who frequently focus on fiduciary matters as a seminal part of their practice.
