Ethical issues surrounding audit response letters

Tomorrow I will be one of two speakers for a three-hour CLE in Clarksville, Tennessee sponsored by the Montgomery County Bar Association.  I’ll be talking about the variety of ethical issues surrounding audit response letters.  Although providing them is certainly contemplated and permitted under RPC 2.3, there are other ethical issues, such as conflicts and confidentiality concerns, as well as significant loss prevention issues that result in end product that often seems like it was not worth anyone’s time or effort.

My presentation is being made under the Talking Heads’ inspired title of “You’re Talking a Lot But You’re Not Saying Anything,” and the two-part CLE will be taking place at the courthouse on Millennium Plaza on the third floor.  If you are in that part of the state and need a few hours of credit, come on out.
