Q&A Lawyer Liability and Ethics: Resolution From the ABA Implicitly Criticizes Arizona’s Ethical Rules
This month’s column discusses the intent of the ABA’s Resolution 402, which passed in August, reaffirming the ABA’s disapproval of the sharing of legal fees with non-lawyers as was established by ABA Model Rule 5.4. The August action comes shortly after an Arizona’s task force identified ER 5.4 as a barrier to innovation in the delivery of legal services and repealed the Rule to allow legal practices to experiment with alternative business models (including the utilization of non-lawyers) in the hopes that increased efficiencies will reduce the cost of legal services. Read about what’s likely behind the Rule, and what’s happening as Arizona experiments with its repeal.
