Law Firms and Lawyers: Train Your Staff Properly for Your Own Protection

I have had the pleasure of representing dozens of attorneys facing the disciplinary process. Out of all of these cases, there were a large number that stood out. These cases shared one thing in common: the lawyer or group of partners faced significant discipline, including suspension or worse, because of something that their staff had done or not done. The good news is that the behavior was discovered and stopped. The bad news is that the discovery had established misconduct within the firm – misconduct in the form of a “failure to supervise.”
