Keeping Company: The Lifespan of a Client Matter

Using an overarching analogy to the ins and outs of social relationships and getting engaged, this 1.0-hour ethics program addresses basic professional responsibility and loss prevention concerns that can arise over the lifespan of a client matter.

The presentation begins with prospective client communications (Model Rule of Professional Conduct 1.17), documenting the engagement of the firm (Rules 1.2, 1.4), and client-imposed conditions (e.g., Rule 1.7, 1.10, 1.13). The presentation then moves to midstream issues such as confidentiality (Rule 1.6) and the risk of “unworthy” clients (Rule 1.2, 1.13), and concludes with the importance of properly terminating a matter (Rule 1.16).
