The first step in avoiding malpractice and disciplinary actions is to have a good understanding about it.

This webinar presents basic practice pointers to avoid committing malpractice and disciplinary actions, and how to respond to claims of malpractice or unethical behavior. The panel also discusses the role that malpractice insurance plays in these situations and the ramifications of a malpractice judgment or disciplinary action. Model Rules discussed include: (a) those that govern the client-lawyer relationship (Rule 1.1 through 1.10; 1.13; and 1.16); (b) those that that speak to transactions with persons other than clients (Rule 4.1 through 4.4); Rules 5.1 through 5.5 (dealing with respective responsibilities of a partners/supervisory lawyers, subordinate lawyers, non-lawyer assistance, independence, unauthorized practice of law, and multijurisdictional practice of law); and communication, including advertising and solicitation of clients (Rules 7.1 through 7.5).
