    The Rules of Professional Conduct don't explicitly address the exit of an associate or partner. At the same time, lawyers leave law firms every day, voluntarily and otherwise, and the parties that get hurt most are often the clients. In this program the speakers will discuss points of common contention between firms and leaving lawyers, and discuss solutions and procedures that maintain professionalism and protect client interests.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Establish best practices for attorneys to follow both during and after the departure to ensure ongoing ethical compliance.
    • Discuss relevant RPCs when a lawyer exits a firm, including ABA Model Rules 1.17, Withdrawal, 1.10, Imputation of Conflicts, 1.4, Communication, 1.3, Diligence, and chapter 5 on supervision and professional responsibility; as well as ABA Formal Opinion 489-1.
    • Learn how firms can make clients sticky to the firm, not the individual
    • Get best practices for notifying clients when their attorney is leaving
    • Associate expectations when they give notice
    • Learn systems that ensure a smooth transition, such as conflicts checks, memos to the file, downloading your knowledge to the next gen, and processes
