Ethically Working With Contract Lawyers: Best Practices and Pitfalls to Avoid


Created on October 13, 2020





The legal industry has evolved beyond traditional law firm practice to encompass a number of non-traditional models of providing legal services, including unbundled, project-based legal work provided by contract attorneys. These different arrangements present new ethical scenarios, both for the contract attorneys and the law firms that use them. This program, presented by Erin Giglia, co-owner, and founder of Montage Legal Group, will use hypothetical scenarios to explore best practices when using freelance and contract attorneys. 

This program will benefit law firms contemplating working with contract attorneys. 

Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify the most common ethical issues that arise when working with contract attorneys
  2. Explore different relationship options with lawyers outside the firm
  3. Discuss best practices and how to avoid ethical pitfalls
