variety of users of the process. Moreover, new arbitrator disclosure rules in
California and the new ABA/AAA Code of Ethics for arbitrators, broader
discovery efforts by parties, particularly of non-parties, and other litigation
strategies have lead to increased court intervention in arbitration proceedings
and challenges to arbitration awards—diminishing the efficiency and cost
effectiveness goals of arbitration.
This program addresses developing case law and practice trends in domestic
and international commercial arbitral proceedings. Topics include: ethical
requirements and issues, procedural challenges to arbitration, availability of
discovery and motion practice, inclusion and exclusion of parties, presentation
of evidence, application of law, evolving uses and roles of mediation, and
challenges to and court scrutiny of arbitral awards.
The program is designed for experienced attorneys and arbitrators. The audience
is expected to be lawyers who practice in the commercial arbitration arena,
transactional lawyers, corporate counsel, commercial arbitrators and academics.

asset valuation, representations and warranties issues, indemnification, contingent
payments, risk assessment, insurance coverage, and post-acquisition disputes.
The first two sessions focuses on energy and technology, both because of the
importance of those sectors and because they are illustrative of typical issues
in problem deals. The third session focus on proven techniques for all problem
deals, including an in-depth discussion of AAA, court-sponsored and
international arbitrations. A General Counsel roundtable completes the program,
where the participants present candid and informative views based on their
experiences with past and ongoing matters. This program has been designed
for lawyers in firms and companies, accountants, financial experts, and
work-out professionals, as well as judges and arbitrators.

with their own responses to the erosion of public confidence in America’s
corporate governance system. This flurry of rule-making and proposals has been
enough to overwhelm even the most dedicated transactional lawyer. Now that the
dust has settled somewhat and an up tick of deal activity appears on the horizon,
it is opportune to reflect on what the impact Sarbanes-Oxley and the related
post-Enron legal and regulatory developments has had or could have on M&A
practice. To an M&A lawyer advising an acquiror, target, investment bank, special
committee, audit committee, independent director, major stockholder or CEO in
the context of a significant business combination, what should he or she distill
from the many disparate developments of the past two years and bring to the
negotiating table or, in the very least, anticipate what others may bring to that
negotiation? To that end, this program addresses the impact of Sarbanes-Oxley
and related post-Enron legal and regulatory developments on M&A practice,
including directors’ duties and corporate governance, due diligence, negotiation
and drafting of contractual provisions, expanded professional responsibilities of
lawyers and other advisors, executive compensation issues and the level and type
of M&A activity.

This interactive session explores how a deal begins and ends its journey within
business organizations, the respective roles of business leaders, lawyers (in-house

hidden time bombs that can come back in an ugly litigation to haunt both the
author and the company.
Most of these documents are insignificant and harmless – except for the backlog
they create in our e-mailboxes and the number of trees that died so they could
live. However, particularly because of the proliferation of e-mail, more and more
“bad documents” are being generated and stored by a wide range of people.
Government investigators and hungry litigators have increasingly focused on
“bad documents” as the basis of class action lawsuits and government
crackdowns. The media has also had a field day lambasting high profile
executives for controversies centered on these bad documents, many of which
are created or approved by the senior executives themselves.
Lawyers have spoken and written extensively on the subject of documents.
Cottage industries have cropped up in an effort to address the myriad of
issues arising out of the growing mountain of information generated within
organizations. Their focus has been primarily on the back end of the process —
record retention and destruction.
The program examines the risks and land mines associated with the creation
and distribution of documents within organizations. Through use of real world
examples – sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic – the program explores how
an organization’s culture can alternatively foster or preempt the creation of a bad
document. Using role playing techniques, the program offers lawyers, and their
clients, practical strategies and tactics for dealing with challenges presented by
documents in the Information Age.

An expert faculty of regulators, accountants and private practitioners will discuss
how to determine what constitutes “reasonable” compensation for executives
and board members of charities, private foundations and other non-profit
organizations. The panelists cover general standards for executive compensation,
the law of intermediate sanctions, eliminating the appearance of private inurement
and the specific targets for IRS scrutiny beyond Forms 990, 1099 and W-2. This
discussion may be of particular interest to those involved in setting compensation
at not-for-profit health and mental health organizations, since some have been
noted for paying their executives high salaries.

extraordinarily difficult task.

TIVO-like systems may soon have a similar impact on the marketing and
exhibition of television programs and motion pictures. New technologies are
also profoundly impacting the worlds of newspapers, magazines and books.
This seminar covers the legal, business and ethical issues that arise as these
industries respond to the new technologies, including the attempts of the
recording and motion picture businesses to deal with unauthorized file sharing
services such as KaZaA and Grokster, court battles between the recording
business and the ISPs, and pending and future federal legislation. New ethical
issues for entertainment attorneys arising due to new technologies are also
addressed.

forefront of business practice. With globalization and the continuing expansion
of international trade and environmental requirements, no corporate, securities,

and the securities laws, environmental requirements for international business
practice, environmental impact assessment mandates, due diligence and reporting
requirements.

are occasionally listed on the firm’s balance sheet, for example by earmarking a
portion of surplus (i.e., reserve) for contingent liabilities. More often, however,
these liabilities are listed in a footnote, thus leaving the firm’s stated net worth
undisturbed. If these liabilities are “deemed” remote or immaterial, often they are
not even disclosed.
A panel comprised of an experienced practitioner, regulator, in-house counsel,
and accounting expert examine how a company can effectively estimate
and disclose its contingent liabilities. Topics include: accounting principles
(i.e., GAAP), audit letters, new requirements per Sarbanes-Oxley, and due
diligence in buy sell transactions. Through an unfolding example of the sale of
a company with contingent liabilities (e.g., environmental and products liability
claims), the panel discuss counsel’s obligations and the role of regulators,
management, and accountants.

The IRS estate tax examiners are thoroughly trained in investigative techniques
and for the most part have many years of experience. Senior examiners will often
guide an examiner who is not familiar with a particular issue. Many estate tax
examiners look for such items as omitted assets, disguised gifts, undisclosed
life insurance, void or voidable transfers, jointly held assets and miscellaneous
property interests. In addition, the examiner will, on occasion, encounter
indications of fraud. These badges of fraud will be discussed as well. In addition,
such topics as statute of limitations, civil accuracy penalties, civil fraud and
criminal fraud will be covered.
This program is based upon the experience of the author as a practitioner and
former IRS agent (audit and fraud) and features a detailed analysis of the IRS
Handbook for Estate Tax Examiners.

representation of a capital defendant.
Would a lawyer who opposes the death penalty only where the defendant is
mentally impaired represent an unimpaired capital defendant as effectively as
would the lawyer in the case of an impaired defendant? Would a prosecutor who
opposes the death penalty for teenagers zealously prosecute a twenty-year-old
defendant? Most importantly, would a lawyer who believes that the criminal
justice system is inherently subject to variable circumstances ever be able fairly
to defend a death penalty case where the defendant has actually confessed guilt to
the lawyer? In light of the varying attitudes held by abolitionist lawyers, and the
ethical obligation imposed on the lawyer effectively to represent the client, the
panelists identify the varying degrees of abolitionism, and define how such views
may affect their ability effectively to represent death penalty defendants.

deciding whether and how to represent a class of plaintiffs, or more than one
co-plaintiff whose claims may not be equally strong, or whose settlement needs or
wishes may differ? Under what circumstances is an attorney obligated to disclose
information to his adversary in the course of settlement negotiations? All of these
issues have been touched upon by ethics opinions of this Association and others
within the last eighteen months alone, and they are just a few of the ethical issues
an employment law practitioner can expect to face. In many instances, knowing
and planning for issues like these can prevent a situation that may require
discontinuance of the representation. At this program, a panel of ethics experts
and employment law practitioners examine these and other ethical questions that
typically arise in this practice area through a series of hypotheticals, designed to
give the practitioner tools for dealing with these issues in the real world.

Among the topics to be discussed are: procedural aspects of the disciplinary
system; withdrawal from a case; conflicts of interest; letters of engagement and

benefits, present themselves and should be given careful consideration. This
program focuses on areas which matrimonial lawyers should be alert to in
negotiating and drafting agreements as well as highlighting common mistakes
that should be avoided.
In the area of estate and trust planning, specific attention is given to (i) the need
to address the creation of a trust where there is a child with “special needs”
involved; (ii) the benefits of a trust to avoid the estate taxation of life insurance;
(iii) the importance of conformity by the parties in their wills with respect to the
selection of a guardian and the ages of distribution of assets to children; and (iv)
the passing of jointly held assets and the taxation of such assets when they are to
be sold or distributed subsequent to a divorce. In addition, prenuptial agreements
pose many issues in the planning of the death of a party, particularly where a
non-citizen spouse may be involved. These areas, in addition to the basics which
must be known about Social Security benefits, is reviewed.

upon reinsurance. Just as the simple diatonic scale has provided the raw material
for centuries of musical evolution, reinsurance has over the same period provided
the form and practice for evolving products and economics of insurance
companies.
This seminar explores current uses of reinsurance outside of the traditional
paradigm of ordinary course risk-sharing. A prominent panel of reinsurance
professionals address current structures such as transferring reinsurance to the
capital markets, reinsurance and segregated cells, and derivative transformers
with cut-through clauses and assignments of reinsurance. The friction in trying
to adapt traditional common law and regulatory reinsurance concepts (e.g., duty
of utmost good faith, credit reinsurance) to these contemporary reinsurance
solutions is also be discussed.

stock price which oftentimes involve irregularities in the company’s financial
reporting. In some instances, D&O claims attack business strategies, corporate
philosophies and management styles. D&O claims can involve highly publicized
situations, such as Enron, in which the financial wherewithal of the corporation,
its employees & investors are totally at risk. Directors and officers, and corporate
liability insurance products address these exposures and are a key component of
any company’s risk management plan. The legal environment continues to evolve
in the wake of the many financial restatements, corporate governance under the
Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the enhanced role of the Securities and Exchange
Commission in protecting public investors. With the exposures presented by
securities class actions at catastrophic levels, the D&O insurance product and
the marketplace continue to evolve. Our panel of professionals from various
components of the D&O industry provide their insights on these issues:

and coordinate their responses to employee absences and requests for time off,
employees have just as much difficulty understanding their rights. At this
program, an expert panel of labor and employment law practitioners bring you up
to date on the most recent developments concerning attendance and absenteeism
under the FMLA and ADA. The faculty review issues through hypothetical
situations based on recent case law and help demonstrate how to legally control
uncovered absenteeism. They also provide step-by-step approaches to managing
all the requirements of the ADA and FMLA in a fair and efficient manner, and
offer direct and pragmatic answers to the most frequently asked questions you
are likely to encounter from your employer or employee clients. Specifically, the
faculty addresses:
   • How to resolve issues that arise under the ADA & FMLA to limit
     malingerers’ continual and questionable absenteeism without injuring
     employee morale
   • What policies and procedures employers need to adopt to ensure they always
     comply with the ADA & FMLA while at the same time having employees
     understand their obligations under the law
   • What are rights of disabled individuals whose leaves of absence extend
     beyond the employers’ disability leave time, especially in cases where the
     employer cannot keep the position open until the employee returns

the Federal Fair Housing Act for guidance on pursuing or defending claims of
discrimination based upon disability, there are significant legal distinctions when
these claims are raised under New York State or City Laws. One example of these
differences includes a more generous definition of the term disability under
New York State and City Laws. This course focuses on these distinctions, and
provide information regarding the enforcement of these laws.
An additional component of the program includes handling practical issues that
arise when your client is an individual with a disability and accommodating their
needs.
If you represent persons with disabilities, or clients that include employers,
housing providers, or business owners that have facilities open to the public,
this program will provide you with an understanding of the different protections
afforded to persons with disabilities under New York State and City Laws.

reports seldom point out the many difficulties associated with these kinds of
cases. This program is designed as a primer to introduce plaintiffs’ attorneys,
including those who practice employment law, to the fundamental concepts in
this area of law. It combines theoretical analysis with pragmatic suggestions,
including many beguiling ethical issues that are inherent in most whistleblower
cases. The core of the program centers on representative, but not exclusive,
statutes with whistleblower bounty, qui tam and/or anti-retaliation provisions.
The program covers: how to spot and evaluate whistleblower cases, how to
proceed to a successful end result, and how to avoid certain pitfalls.

employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) or 401(k) plans that allow participants
to direct the investment of their accounts in employer stock or mandate that
employer contributions be invested in employer stock. Typically, the plaintiff
plan participants sue the employer and a host of other persons they claim to be
fiduciaries for breaches of fiduciary duties under ERISA.
Despite some of the significant risks and pitfalls of sponsoring these types of
plans, possible benefits may exist. In addition to addressing the ERISA fiduciary
issues affecting ESOPs and other plans investing in employer stock, this program
examines why businesses create ESOPs and similar plans, the tax incentives for
owners of companies to sell stock to ESOPs, as well as other relevant considera-
tions from an employer, employee and plan fiduciary perspective. A panel of
ERISA experts discuss not only the nuts and bolts of ESOPs and other plans
investing in employer stock, but also what can, and occasionally does go wrong
with these plans.
The course has two parts: the transactional and compliance aspects of these plans;
and the litigation aspects of these plans, with a particular focus on fiduciary
issues.

importance, including State Farm, matters affecting New York State and Federal
practice, and major publications, among other topics, are covered.
The presentation of experts includes expert retention, case management and dis-
covery considerations, Daubert developments, trial preparation and demonstrative
evidence, as well as emerging and future expert issues. Our discussion of experts
take into account state and federal court distinctions, mass tort, class action and
individual case distinctions and testifying versus non-testifying distinctions.
Removal decisions are discussed, including those naming non-diverse defendants
and the doctrines of fraudulent joinder and fraudulent misjoinder; removal of
diversity based cases more than a year after commencement; removal deadlines
and ‘first served vs. later-served defendants’, evolving class action removal
theories and generally, removal traps and pitfalls for the unwary practitioner.
The program addresses such topics as trends in the citing of MDLs, coordination
of federal MDL proceedings with state cases, when cases are not consolidated,
denial of transfer developments and the like. These MDL issues are of immense
importance in today’s handling of products and related litigation.
This program includes judicial and academic perspectives on these timely topics.

in part to buy out certain classes of partners under a buy-sell waterfall; the
general partner(s) may be awarded a carried interest on a going forward basis;
pre-payment penalties may be incurred; and lender(s) may require transfer of the
property to a “bankruptcy remote” entity. In many of these deals the presence of
foreign partners or lenders, or of pension plan partners seeking “fractions rule”
compliance, as well as other partners seeking to retain “sliver interests” due to
“negative capital account” problems, further complicates life for all. Significant
real property transfer taxes can arise or be minimized or eliminated by the form
of the deal. While your tax partner handles the tax issues, it is still important for
you to have a global understanding of what all the fuss is about to be able to spot
and negotiate all the landmines in the deal.
This program provides the real estate lawyer with a working knowledge of key
tax points in the deal, through a hypothetical case study, without bogging down
in overly complex detail, and gives him/her the benefit of an experienced and
prominent faculty of tax practitioners as to how many of these issues, and more,
are handled in practice.

service providers can defer compensation income without penalty and impose
an extra 20 percent penalty tax on compensation deferred pursuant to non-
compliant plans. In addition, the new compensation rules impose new reporting
requirements on companies using deferred compensation arrangements.
Effective January 1, 2005, the new compensation rules provide only limited
grandfather relief. As a result, companies need to review immediately their
existing and prior compensation plans and awards and determine whether and to
what extent they should take remedial measures to come into compliance with the
new compensation rules. Find out how to meet the challenges of the new tax law.

what regulations apply; what alternative regulatory frameworks are being explored
by the FCC & the states; what are their likely impacts on the industry and on
consumers?
In December 2001, the FCC initiated a rulemaking to reexamine its policies on
unbundled network elements that incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs) or
“Baby Bells” must share with competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) at
regulated rates. The Triennial Review Order (TRO) was released in August 2003.
In March 2004, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia struck down
key portions of the TRO. Recent developments and best practices are examined.
Outsourcing is seen by companies as an effective medium for cutting costs and
having telecom companies handle telecoms. In negotiating, contract attorneys
must be able to address issues of performance standards/remedies, migration,
asset sales, ownership of intellectual property, transfer of employees and
numerous other questions. This session prepares attorneys for the overall increase
in outsourcing activity that so many businesses are currently experiencing.
