Unbundled Legal Services - Business Models and Ethics

Available: In Stock      
Price: $64.95      

Limited scope engagement requests are becoming more popular, as more clients seeking to economize their representation and take advantage of the ever-expanding array of self-represented litigant tools available through the courts and online. These arrangements require special ethical considerations separate from full representation cases. When executed effectively, limited scope engagements bring business to attorneys and help bridge the justice gap, by making crucial periods in a legal case affordable to clients who would otherwise not be able to afford full representation.

Patrick Burns will discuss best practices for ethical and effective limited scope engagements, covering the rules of professional responsibility and the recent disciplinary decision from the Minnesota Supreme Court, In re Petition for Disciplinary Action against A.B. (Minn., 2014).  Jenna Westby will discuss how to incorporate unbundled legal services into your law firm’s business plan, generating business opportunities, as well as satisfaction from serving clients who could not otherwise afford standard practice arrangements.

This CLE is approved for credit through June 27, 2019.
