JULY

Ethics and the Lateral Transfer of Lawyers Among Law Firms
Sponsored by the Idaho Law Foundation, Inc. in partnership with Peach New Media and WebCredenza

Friday, July 25, 2014
11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (MDT) / 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. (PDT).
Teleseminar/Audio Stream
1.0 CLE Credit of which 1.0 is Ethics
$50.00 - Online Registration ONLY

The pace at which lawyers are moving among law firms has increased in the last decade. This trend reflects the changing structure of law practice, general economic volatility, demand from clients for more specialization and lower costs, and the spread of technology.  Every time a lawyer changes law firm affiliation, a range of urgent ethical issues arise for the lawyer, his or her old firm and the firm he or she hopes to join.  Among the many questions are whether and when communications with clients are proper, ownership and transfers of files, law firm names, and conflict checks.  This program will provide lawyers with a practical framework of ethical issues that arise when they change law firm affiliation.

  • Ethical issues when lawyers change law firm affiliation
  • Propriety and timing of communications with the departing lawyer’s clients
  • Ownership and transfer of client files among law firms
  • Diligence for the new firm before offering a position to a prospective partner or associate – conflicts, confidentiality, and screening
  • Issues when a solo practitioner joins a multi-lawyer firm
  • Malpractice coverage issues
