On Tuesday, June 30, Erin K. Higgins presented on the American Bar Association (ABA) program “Legal Ethics: Obligations of Lawyers and Law Firms When A Lawyer Decides to Change Jobs.” The program considered how the rules of professional conduct affect the 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.
