ABA - Legal Ethics: Obligations of Lawyers and Law Firms When A Lawyer Decides to Change Jobs
On Tuesday, June 30, Erin K. Higgins will present on the American Bar Association (ABA) program "Legal Ethics: Obligations of Lawyers and Law Firms When A Lawyer Decides to Change Jobs.
" The program will consider how the rules of professional conduct affect decisions of lawyers (partners and non-partners) to leave law firms and the responses of those firms. A major focus will be on the ethical ramifications of communications with clients, handling conflicts of interest, and preserving client confidentiality. The panelists also will discuss the recent Formal Ethics Opinion 489, which addresses notice requirements and the law firm’s obligation to ensure an orderly transition of client matters.
