When to Draw the Line: Ethical Pitfalls in Bankruptcy and Social Media

Transparency is fundamental to the bankruptcy process, so it’s no surprise that a failure to disclose required information or identify conflicts of interest can lead to serious ethical issues. At the same time, the digital age in which we practice, and the pervasiveness of social media, raise the opposite problem: What happens when too much information is shared? This session explores the ethical and professional considerations of both under-disclosing and over-sharing in bankruptcy cases by using illustrations from recent, real-life scenarios and interactive attendee participation. You may be surprised to learn what your obligations are, including with respect to policing what other people say or post.
