12-Withdrawing Lawyers (Including Non-Compete Issues)

45-Law Firms - Miscellaneous

A lawyer fulfills the ethic Rules' obligations by sending notices to all of a law firm's clients that the law firm is disbanding. A lawyer has fewer obligations to clients that have been retained by the lawyer' partner before the partnership began and who therefore never engaged the partnership to represent them.
