Program Description
 
Co-counsel and referral relationships are common in law practice.  Lawyers associate with other lawyers on cases to gain specialized knowledge required for competent representation in a case or jointly represent clients with the same interests.  Litigation counsel may seek “local counsel” on a case in another jurisdiction.  Also, lawyers refer out business for a variety of reasons, including overflow work or work outside of a lawyer’s core competencies – e.g., when a business lawyer refers the tax aspect of a matter.  These any many other co-counsel and referral relationships, however, raise substantial ethical and malpractice issues.  This program will provide you with a framework for understanding the ethical issues surrounding co-counsel and referral relationships and the personal liability that may arise from them.
 
- Duty to supervise counsel to whom you have referred work
- Ethical issues in fee splitting in co-counsel or referral relationships
- Ethical issues of associating with other lawyers or firms to gain competence in specific areas
- Liability to co-counsel for breaches of fiduciary duty or malpractice
- Liability for errors of co-counsel
- Duty to inform of malpractice by co-counsel
