This one-hour ethics session focuses even more particularly on representing a band or artist and uses the final few years, and demise, of The Beatles career as a case study. Specific emphasis is placed on the Model Rules of Professional Conduct 1.7 (conflict of interest—current client); 1.13 (Organization as a client); 1.14 (Client with Diminished Capacity); and 2.1 (Role as Advocate). Further, we review the ethical issues in the "My Sweet Lord" copyright infringement case.

In addition to family law concerns, important estate planning issues arise as soon as a married couple becomes separated. This presentation explores estate planning issues that arise during separation and after divorce, implications of the death of a spouse during a separation, premarital and post-marital agreements, including issues regarding enforceability, and the division of retirement benefits, including practice tips and common pitfalls in drafting qualified domestic relations orders (QDROs). David E. Holm joins this presentation to bring practical insights and expert guidance from the perspective of a practicing family law attorney.
