Ethical Practice and Emergency Planning
Ethical rules require that an attorney have a plan in place in the event of their death or incapacity. COVID 19 presents a unique challenge for practitioners across all disciplines, as well as to courts and government agencies. Simply, lawyers must not ignore the risk that they become unable to practice law.
Lawyers professional lives are dictated by deadlines and missing a deadline can cause great harm to both attorney and client. It is important for lawyers to have a backup, whether that means someone who can step in on a temporary basis, or practice management software that makes an entire file available remotely in an instant.
Attorney Jacob Simon is very excited to take part in an upcoming webinar that will discuss emergency succession planning for lawyers. This program is sponsored by the Bankruptcy Section of the Boston Bar Association and will broadcast live on July 16, 2020 from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. Further information may be found here.
We would love for you to join us for insights into the ethical and practical issues of emergency succession planning.
