Ethical Limits on the Contract Rights of Attorneys

Program Number
Program Date

People who need contracts negotiated or reviewed turn to attorneys for assistance. But when attorneys are contemplating entering into contracts themselves, the ethics rules impose a number of restrictions on their ability to do so. This program will explore the handful or so of ABA Model Rules that impact attorneys in this respect, including discussion of the rules that not only impact attorney ability to contract but extend out to hamper an attorneys clients ability to obtain settlements when problematic (for the attorney) terms are in the mix. In addition to discussion of Model Rule 5.6, Rules 1.5, 1.8, and 1.2 will be explored.
