O2: Professional Responsibility and Legal Ethics

Rawle & Henderson LLP’s Professional Responsibility and Legal Ethics Practice Group provides legal advice to attorneys, law firms and clients on a wide variety of professional responsibility and legal ethics issues. Our attorneys serve as current and past members and chairs of the state disciplinary board and lawyer security fund. We regularly offer advice and opinions on the ethical and legal obligations of attorneys and law firms. Our attorneys have helped clients resolve or where necessary litigate partnership disputes between attorneys, including the prosecution and defense of dissolution and breach of fiduciary duty claims. The members of this practice group are regular contributors to various publications on topics involving professional responsibility and have served as speakers on a variety of topics in the field of Professional Responsibility and Ethics.

If we have done these things, we could add the following:

  • Helping law firms and attorneys respond to allegations of legal malpractice
  • Representing clients in disciplinary actions
  • Writing ethics opinions
  • Defending attorney sanction motions, contempt proceedings or Rule 11 motions
  • Counseling law firms on partnership and ethics issues
  • Addressing conflict of interest matters
  • Do we prosecute and defend fee disputes
  • Have we served as expert witnesses in legal malpractice or disciplinary proceedings
