Start a new chapter in compliance with SCR 20
When it comes to winding down a law practice, it’s a bit more complicated than just submitting your two weeks’ notice, cleaning out your desk, and calling it a day. You need to know how to communicate with clients, transfer representation, and purge files in compliance with the Rules of Professional Conduct.
In The Ethics of Transitions, Dean Dietrich and Steve Sorenson will address the plethora of ethical questions and concerns attorneys face when making the decision to retire or slow down, including:
- Of counsel status
- Referral arrangements
- Selling a law practice
- Joint, limited scope, and Pro Se representation
- Maintaining client files
- Transferring clients
- Serving on boards
Plus, discuss the importance of proper succession planning to ensure your clients are taken care of if you become incapacitated due to disability or death.
Whether you’re ready to hang up your hat or just want to take things a bit easier, The Ethics of Transitions will outline how to make your next career move happen.
