Anthony Davis Authors "Legal Ethics 'Through The Looking Glass'" in the New York Law Journal

September 10, 2015

New York, New York — Anthony E. Davis, a Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP partner and member of the Lawyers for the Profession® group authored the article, " Legal Ethics 'Through The Looking Glass'" for the New York Law Journal reports on a recent case that underscores the risks of succumbing to the temptation to respond online to derogatory client postings.  The article then critiques a series of ethics opinions that set inconsistent standards for lawyers seeking to partner or share fees with non-lawyers that give different outcomes depending solely on where a lawyer is physically based, and points to the need for a change in the rules of professional conduct that would balance the removal of the barriers to these arrangements while also protecting the interests of the public.
