TARGET PRACTICE AREAS:
Ethics

Brought to you in partnership with WebCredenza
These telephone seminars are presented by national speakers who are experts in their areas of practice often ABA Section chairs, authors of books in their areas of practice, and heads of practice groups.

Solo and small firm practitioners wear many hats. They run the office and manage all of its information technology – file storage, email, web site. They may supervise paralegals or contract attorneys. They practice law but also need to be attentive to developing new clients. Each of these and other roles comes with ethics issues. Email, file storage, and law firm web sites implicate issues of competence, confidentiality, and potentially the attorney-client privilege.  Supervising paralegals or junior attorneys implicates supervisory ethics and conflicts of interest.  Client development also implicates a range of ethics issues. It can be a lot to manage, even in larger firms. This program will provide you with a practical guide to major ethics issues for solo and small firm practitioners.

  • Ethical issues for small law firms and solo practitioners
  • Technology – storing client files in “the Cloud,” email traps, and remote networks
  • Pooled Resources – shared office/meeting space, shared support staff, shared technology
  • Client Development – web sites and lawyer biographies, email/newsletters, social media, advertising and more
  • Paralegals – training and billing, confidentiality and the attorney-client privilege
  • Co-Counsel – ethical responsibilities when practicing with other lawyers
