Clark Hill Attorney William B. Dunn to present at the International Council of Shopping Centers US Shopping Center Law Conference October 17, 2013
Grand Rapids, MI
– Clark Hill Attorney William B. Dunn will present “Ethics for the Commercial Leasing Lawyer: MJP, UPL, and Other Issues You Should Be Considering but Might Not Be” at the ICSC US Shopping Center Law Conference on October 17, 2013 in San Diego, CA. The workshop will touch on how lawyer mobility, client needs, and an increasingly virtual practice are constrained by the traditional ethics rules that regulate the legal profession based on where a lawyer is admitted to practice. The organized bar is faced with the choice of either enforcing rules that no longer seem realistic or purposeful or adapting to the reality of a borderless practice while preserving essential values of the profession. The workshop will explore the rules and their application, the tensions involved in change, and progress toward recognition of a borderless practice.
Dunn serves as “Of Counsel” in Clark Hill’s Real Estate Practice Group. He specializes in real property, secured transactions and related business practice, as well as legal ethics and professional responsibility.
Over his long and active career, Dunn has been, and continues to be, routinely involved in a broad spectrum of sophisticated real estate and commercial transactions. He works extensively in lending, foreclosures and workouts, leasing, acquisitions and sales as well as development activities, and represents public bodies, developers and end users of real estate.
