Shari Claire Lewis will be a speaker at the CLM 2014 Professional Liability & eDiscovery Conference on January 24, 2014. Ms. Lewis will present, “The Professional in the Virtual Office.”
There has been a geometric increase in the professional use of the “virtual office” due to the confluence of bad economic conditions, ubiquitous remote access technology, and shifting work/life expectations. This presentation will discuss the professional pitfalls that practicing in the virtual office may present. Legal and ethical issues that may arise will be discussed, such as in connection with professional solicitations, client identification, client communications, etc. The panel will explore the significant risk of data breach, breach of confidentiality and privacy concerns that arise in the virtual office. Participants will leave the discussion with a better understanding of the risks that are presented by the professional in the virtual office and methods to assess and manage that risk from an insurance and practitioner prospective.
