As the complexity of today's business world continues to increase, so do the legal-ethics issues facing in-house counsel. Once again, Blakes is pleased to be bringing together a panel to discuss these complex issues. The panel will be comprised of in-house counsel and representatives of The Law Society of British Columbia.

Join us in person at the Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver for an interactive discussion, over breakfast, about current ethical issues, risk mitigation and practical solutions.
