Personal injury litigation is a dynamic, high-stakes area of law. Enhance your ability to make the right decisions, to best serve your clients and to avoid a host of costly pitfalls.

As a legal professional practicing personal injury law, you know that even the most straight-forward file can trigger unique ethical dilemmas – many of which can result in costly consequences for your client, and for you (both monetary and reputational).

In this OsgoodePD webinar, experienced members of the Bench and Bar will discuss a number of challenging, realistic case files – equally applicable to both Plaintiff and Defence. You’ll learn best practices, proven strategies and get practical guidance on how to navigate ethical challenges you can expect to encounter at one time or another in your career. Topics include:

  • Conflicts – when you should get off the record; representation issues for defence acting for multiple parties; disclosure to the Court;
  • Conduct at Examinations for Discovery of counsel and client;
  • How to deal with a client’s dishonesty or death;
  • Questionable disbursements, including referral fees;
  • Kickback payments;
  • Strategies for dealing with confrontational opposing counsel – when should you get the Court involved?
  • Obligations to court – communications, self reps, filing contrary case law
  • Retaining experts & obtaining multiple reports
