In today’s legal services marketplace, more and more solo and small firm lawyers are facing challenges not only in terms competition with new forms of legal service providers, but also with regard to practices that could result in disciplinary complaints. We will have a panel of experts who will discuss simple steps that lawyers can take to reduce the risk of becoming the subject of a disciplinary complaint and what to do if they are on the receiving end of a grievance. In particular, the discussion will focus on areas that result in the most disciplinary complaints: Model Rules of Professional Conduct 1.1 (Competence), 1.4 (Communication), 1.5 (Fees), 1.6 (Confidentiality), and 1.15 (Safekeeping Property).  

This webinar is the result of collaborative efforts of the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility and NAPABA.
