Register For Webcast

Employee conflicts can impact the client and firm in a negative way. Learn how to recognize when a client or employee conflict appears and how building and maintaining an ethical wall can have a positive result for your client and avoid consequences resulting from breaches. Unpredictable, irrational, and impulsive behaviors from clients lead to significant practical challenges in legal practice. The consequences often include attorney burnout, increased liability, and hours spent on non-billable client management tasks. This presentation offers psychological explanations for understanding problematic client behaviors, including unrealistic expectations, oscillating between loving and hating one's attorney, difficulty comprehending complex legal issues, and an inability to follow attorney direction at critical moments. By drawing on the psychological literature on personality, trauma, and relationship patterns, it will review well informed strategies to manage challenging client interactions.
