  • Getting Positive Social Media Reviews – When and how they are harmful to Lawyers;
  • Additional Ethical Considerations – Confidentiality; Evidence Code section 958; and the Duty of Loyalty
Co-counsel relationships:
  • Separate engagement agreements with client, and client consent to any fee-sharing agreement;
  • Communications with the client, and with co-counsel
  • Beware of co-counsel conflicts;
  • Allocation of responsibilities
  • Considerations for potentially limiting scope of representation
  • Client agreement
