HBO’s hit series “Succession” follows a fictional media company led by a legendary patriarch. As the title suggests, the patriarch’s children are angling to seize the throne and succeed their father as the company’s CEO. In this presentation, Brent Turman and Kheana Pollard track the power plays of the company’s c-level executives and general counsel, explaining whether their on-screen actions comply with specific ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct (spoiler alert: most of the time they don’t.). Through the lens of this captivating series, Turman and Pollard provide an entertaining way for attorneys to obtain ethics credit.
