Ethics: Opinions and Advance Waivers

The Miller's Tale is a cautionary tale of characters each of whom in his way assumed too much, and failed to take account of reservations.  Much like certain legal opinions.  This panel will consider the ethical issues of third party opinion givers in conjunction with the Tri-Bar approach developed more than 25 years ago, the trials and tribulations of "advance waivers" and certain ethical issues involved with opinions given by purchasers' counsel.  The panel will also consider the opinion issues which can arise in cross-border transactions, including differences in the practice of issuing legal opinions.
