Alternative Funding Models and Other Hot Topics in Attorneys Fees - Breakout #2

Friday, June 1 
(3:40 - 5:00pm)

Panelists: Peter Jarvis, Aviva Kaiser, Ellen Pansky

Rule 1.5 is one of the most detailed provisions in all of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, but it barely begins to guide the resolution of issues that lawyers and clients encounter in reaching the end of lawyers’ getting paid for their work.

This panel will examine what’s new in the modern landscape of legal fees and the methods, currency, and value by which they are paid, and ethical pitfalls that can occur to prevent their being paid.
