General practitioners are always in the fast lane, dabbling in multiple practice areas, jumping from case to case and struggling to stay on top of changes in the law. They are quite literally always on the go, running to client consultations, court appearances, and depositions. The one constant is the expectations of each client: general practitioners are expected to know and understand every new development that may impact an open case.
In this excerpt from PBI’s 2011 General Practitioners’ Update, our faculty members discuss a wide range of recent cases pertaining to attorney professional liability. The cases fall into 3 broad categories: 1) substantive issues arising from civil practice; 2) criminal proceedings; and 3) defenses and procedural issues involving attorney liability. Numerous specific topics include abuse of process, aiding fraudulent conveyance, arbitration misconduct, conflicts, debt collection practices, settlement liability, wrongful use of civil proceedings, successful criminal defense, and privilege for internal law firm communications.
PBI’s General Practitioners’ Update is a partner in practice like no other partner: it is your reliable source each year for concentrated updates in six practice areas. When there is no time for research, compiling and digging, there’s the General Practitioners’ Update.
