NEW! Eye on Ethics: New ABA Formal Opinion 475: Safeguarding Fees That Are Subject to Division with Other Counsel
You have a personal injury practice.
You are currently representing a client in a matter that involves a particular type of toxic tort that you have never litigated before. You know of another lawyer from another firm who has experience in this area and so you consult with her and agree to bring her on as co-counsel under a fee-sharing arrangement.
The trial is successful, and you have just received a settlement check from the opposing party from which you will deduct the legal fees that are due to you and co-counsel.
The Forum is a national educational, informational and networking event for professionals working in the area of client protection. Our open arena offers a stimulating mix of formal educational sessions with the opportunity for an informal exchange of ideas.
