Attorney Ethics When Starting a New Law Firm
Sponsored by the Idaho Law Foundation, Inc. in partnership with Peach New Media and WebCredenza

Friday, September 19, 2014

Teleseminar / Audio Stream
1.0 CLE Credit of which 1.0 is Ethics
$50.00 - Online Registration ONLY

Starting a new law firm requires extensive planning to ensure ethics compliance.  From choosing the name of the firm to conflicts clearance of new hires, starting a new firm is fraught with ethical issues.  If the firm is “virtual” in the sense of office- and resource-sharing, must clients be informed? How must attorneys instruct and supervise junior attorneys and non-attorney personnel to avoid liability for ethical breaches?  What is permissible in developing new client work and establishing referral relationships among other attorneys and firms?  These and many other issues are vitally important as new firms are stated. This program will provide you with a real-world guide to major ethics issue when founding a new law firm. 

  • Ethics in a naming a firm and letterhead issues
  • Virtual law office issues – office sharing, documents on the cloud, and more
  • Avoiding conflicts of interest when forming a new firm – imputation of disqualification
  • Attorney duties to supervise lawyers and non-lawyers
  • Ethics and law firm web sites and marketing activities
  • Establishing trust fund accounting
  • Ethical landmines of referral relationships
