Lawyer leaving law firm

Precedent letters when lawyer leaves a firm

Ethical considerations when a lawyer moves on (Practice Watch, Benchers' Bulletin, Summer 2014)

Note: This Practice Watch states that an expanded version of this article will be published as a practice resource in late 2014. However, the Federation of Law Societies Standing Committee on the Model Code has drafted revisions to the Model Code rules setting out a lawyer’s obligations when leaving a law firm and has invited comment from the law societies. Accordingly, this article, "Ethical considerations when a lawyer moves on," will likely not be updated until after any BC Code rule changes that may come about following changes to the Model Code.
