Partner Shannon Donnelly joined the panel for "Attorney Compliance and Ethics: Tools to Navigate Global Migration" at the 2022 AILA/GMS Annual Global Migration Forum in New York.

Navigating global mobility as an immigration attorney requires robust knowledge, expertise, and support. To successfully establish, run, or grow a global practice, lawyers have to surround themselves with other experts in the field. Acting for overseas clients or counsel, attorneys need the tools to maintain their ethical obligations. Channeling these complex factors into strategic decisions requires a careful ethical analysis.

Topics included:

  • Retainer Agreements with Local Counsel: Who Is the Client?
  • Addressing Fees Ethically: Trust Account, Interest on Unpaid Fees, Fee Disputes
  • Addressing and Resolving Conflicts with Overseas Legal Counsel
  • How to Navigate All Aspects of Global Mobility: Employment Law, Tax Considerations, etc.
