The Duty of Candor, Old Rules, New Rules, and Zealous Representation

Yakov Wiegmann
Partner, Riley Safer Holmes & Cancila, LLP

Jennifer Becker
Partner, Long & Levit, LLP

This presentation explores the interplay between the duty of candor and the duty to zealously represent a client. The duties are not conflicting, but it is important to understand the limits of zealous advocacy to avoid real or perceived inadvertent violations of the duty of candor. The presentation will also address the proposed changes to the current rules, and the application of the rules in state and federal court.

Section Chair: Jennifer Becker, Long & Levit, LLP
