Partners Joy Barrist and Matt O’Toole were panelists at the 32nd Annual RPTE National CLE Conference, which was held as a virtual event. The “Legal Opinions: Liability of Opinion Giver and Other Topics” panel included discussions of legal opinions on common law trusts, legal opinions on Delaware entities, litigation against opinion givers, and unreasonable opinion requests and comments.
