Disputes with clients …

I find it interesting that very few of my posts over the last few months have involved situations where lawyers acted poorly in connection with disputes with their clients.  In fact, it appears that really only one has involved such a situation, this one.  I don’t quite know what to make of that fact given that the topic is a robust one.

Tomorrow, I will be presenting a national webcast seminar through the Clear Law Institute — “Things Go Sour: Ethical Issues for Lawyers in Disputes With Clients”.  I have presented on this topic on a number of prior occasions and am looking forward to the opportunity to do so again tomorrow.  I plan to cover as much of the gamut from how to better situate yourself to avoid disputes in the first place through to the practical realities associated with having to decide whether to sue over unpaid fees.  We start up at 3pm eastern/2pm central.  If you are interested in attending you can sign up at the link above.
