The Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct address duties to clients when attorneys move from one firm to another, and these rules can be applied to the agents of Essential Litigation Partners. The rules provide that we can work with multiple firms without creating a conflict. See Rule 1.9, Comments 5 through 8.
Prior to working on each case, we will conduct an internal conflict search in a similar manner to those conducted in law firms to ensure the law firms are compliant with Rule 1.7 of the Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct. For each case we work on, we will receive information only about that case.
Not in Minnesota? We comply with similar rules in each state.
Transferring information securely is of utmost importance. Information can be transferred between us in the following ways:
We suggest “Senior Paralegal” or “Litigation Specialist.”
Similar to if we were full-time employees, our billable rates to clients should be based on our years of experience, the quality and complexity of our work, and prevailing rates in the marketplace.
When we send you our monthly invoices, we will also provide the detailed information in Excel so you can insert our billing details into your clients’ invoices.
