E-commerce has exploded over the last 15 years, and this trend is finally finding its way to the law. This webinar is designed to help lawyers and law firms understand the primary ethics issues that may arise when selling or delivering legal services online.
Lawyers who attend will learn about:
- Online advertising and fee-splitting: A review of the first amendment considerations and limitations surrounding online referrals.
- The ethics of online Q&A: How does answering questions online from people who may be out-of-state mesh with state-based practice limitations?
- Online “deals” and unbundled services: To what extent do online deals or other unbundled offers implicate ethics rules around advertising, trust accounts, excessive fees, conflicts and the duty of competence?
- Technology & security: What special considerations around technology and cloud-based applications are in play when serving clients online?
*Please note that CLE credit will only be given to those that attend the live online session.
