Professional Responsibility Considerations for Attorneys
Engaged in International Transactions
- Grant Leach
This presentation will cover professional responsibility
obligations and suggested best practices for US-based
attorneys involved in international transactions. Topics
to be discussed include: (1) restrictions on authorized
and unauthorized practice of law in foreign jurisdictions
under the ethics rules (featuring specific discussion on
the differing responsibilities of in-house and outside
counsel); (2) an attorney’s obligation to screen foreign
clients against various US sanctions lists as required by
American Bar Association Formal Opinion No. 463; and
(3) additional ABA voluntary good practices guidance for
combatting money laundering and terrorist financing.
