Attorney Liability After Sarbanes-Oxley is a much-needed reference for in-house and outside counsel seeking to provide effective representation without violating legal or ethical obligations. What should an attorney do when fraud is afoot? When should an attorney stop representing a corporate client—and what are the rules regarding a "noisy withdrawal"?

This important book explains the perils for lawyers in the wake of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and provides expert advice on the steps that can be taken to minimize them. Coverage includes: practical measures to prevent liability; "up-the-ladder" reporting; client identification; primary and secondary liability; conflicts of interest; and whistleblower complaints.

It also provides guidance on in-house counsel's role within the boardroom, when to write letters to clients and memos to the file, and other steps that can avert disaster. For lawyers committed to working vigorously for a client while avoiding potential liability, Attorney Liability After Sarbanes-Oxley is an essential addition to your library.
