Solo and small firm practitioners wear many hats. They practice law but also run the office and manage all of its information technology – file storage, email, and Web sites. They may supervise paralegals or contract attorneys. They also need to be attentive to developing new clients. Each of these and other roles comes with ethical issues and traps. Email, file storage, and law firm web sites implicate issues of competence, confidentiality, and potentially the attorney-client privilege. Supervising paralegals or junior attorneys implicates supervisory ethics and conflicts of interest. Client development also implicates a range of ethics issues. It’s a lot to manage for a firm of any size, but particularly for smaller firms.This program will provide you with a practical guide to major ethics issues for solo and small firm practitioners.
