SAN FRANCISCO – April 12, 2021 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP Labor & Employment Practice Shareholder Philip Person will speak at State Bar of California’s 24th Annual Statewide Ethics Symposium on April 16.
Person will participate in a panel discussion during the Ethics Symposium. The program is presented by the Committee on Professional Responsibility and Conduct. Philip's panel, titled “Lawyering in the Time of COVID: Legal Ethics in the Age of Remote Practice,” will discuss issues of professional responsibility and ethical duties that demand special consideration during this unprecedented time, from an attorney’s duty of technological competence to challenges in handling confidential attorney-client communications in work-from-home situations, as well as questions regarding the unauthorized practice of law for those who do not reside in the jurisdiction in which they are licensed. The panel will also explore lessons learned from, and the future of, remote proceedings.
Person focuses his practice on representing employers in wage and hour, wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination, retaliation, trade secret misappropriation, non-competition, non-solicitation, and whistleblower claims. Philip is an experienced litigator, having defended employers against single-plaintiff and class action litigation in federal courts, state courts, and arbitrations. He also serves as the Co-Host of The Performance Review podcast, a podcast that interviews company representatives on labor and employment laws and issues affecting various industries.
